THE ERC IN THE AZORES: "RALLYING IN A NUTSHELL"
The defending FIA European Rally Champion Kajetan Kajetanowicz is preparing for the Azores Airlines Rallye (2-4 June) - an event he's described as "rallying in a nutshell". The rally takes place on spectacular roads on São Miguel Island and is known for its spectacular scenery, narrow stages and unpredictable weather, creating a tough challenge for the competitors and a thrilling spectacle for fans. "I have an affection for many rallies, but I miss driving in the Azores, not just once I've come back to to Poland, but as soon as we cross the finish ramp," said Kajetanowicz. "If you want to see this sport in a nutshell and learn as much as possible during a single rally, you should visit or compete in the Azores." He added: "Together with other competitors we create a spectacular advertisement of the sport which I love so much."
