Luis Miguel Rego goes forward to another Azores Rallye, “an event that once again marks the beginning of the local championship and guarantees us great visibility and a greater promotional scope. We will be “playing at home” and we want to get a good result in front of our fans, sponsors, friends and family. We will be measuring our progress and seeing if it is possible to adopt a higher pace. Some of our opponents have no commitments and can attack at will. We must think about the championship and make an intelligent race. With such a competitive entry list, we don’t know where we can be. However, we will try to climb up gradually, even though our goal is always the maximum points.
