Erik Cais will be for the third time in the Azores Rallye, “a race in an archipelago that I simply love. The spirit of people and racing in jungle looking
like Jurassic Park is something you can’t find anywhere else. I’m so
glad to race here again. In this edition, big names will compete there this year and it’s dream to race in same car as Mr. Loeb, Mr. Mikkelsen and another really good drivers. So, I
expect big fights during the whole weekend. I just want to enjoy the rally, enjoy São Miguel and do my absolute best in the car!”

The Czech driver with a Skoda Fabia RS Rally2 is 23 years old and has been in rallying since 2018. His debut happened with an Opel Adam but quickly to the wheel of a Peugeot 208 R2. The following year he drove a Ford Fiesta R2T most of the time, the model with which he made his first appearance in the Azores and with which he won ERC3 once. Between 2020 and 2022 he had a Ford Fiesta Rally2 MkII with which he got his first overall victories. This year he has already entered the Monte Carlo and Serras de Fafe rallies.
