Norbert Herczig will be “for the fourth time on the Azores Rallye and, until now, we have not been very lucky because only once w have reached the end of the race. This year that will change. I really like the stages and the atmosphere around the event. The spectators love this sport and it seems that they also understand a lot about it. For me, this Azores Rallye will be special as also my son, Patrik Herczig in a Renault Clio Rally5, will start his ERC campaign. Father and son together on the island!”
