Efren Llarena returns to the Azores Rallye “with well defined goals.We want to have a good rally here and be on the podium. In the previous race, in Fafe, we had many problems, and here we want that not to happen. If so, we will certainly be faster and we may start recovering the points lost in that event. I have already entered this rally and I know that the weather conditions can be quite tough for some competitors and not for others. Let’s hope it goes well for us this time…”
