In an attempt to control both the costs of participation and the performance of the competitors themselves, in the interest of safety, the number of tyres that may be used by the competitors is limited. In this 56th Azores Rallye, as in other events of the FIA European Rally Championship, the number that can be used by the pilots with the most competitive cars, commonly known as R5, is 16, that is, 4 new tyres for each of the sections in which the race is divided. As for the teams with ERC3 and ERC4 cars, this number will be 12. The control of these quantities is done through the marking of the tyres at the exit and entry of each of the assistance parks by the scrutineers
