TV 6 Rally Team Sander Pärn and Ken Järveoja will take part in Rally Portugal which is held in this weekend. This is the fourth round of this years WRC series. Young and talented guys from Estonia will drive Group N Subaru Impreza prepared by Markko Märtin’s team MM-Motorsport.
Sander has been working last two years with Markko Märtin who will be also present in Rally Portugal. In Portugal they will also promote the biggest autosport event in Baltics – auto24 Rally Estonia. Their Subaru Impreza has a special livery made for Rally Portugal and this is very unic marketing as for the first time Estonian rally will be promoted like this.
Sander Pärn: „Rally Portugal is the third WRC rally for us and as we have not been in Portugal before it will be a good experience for us. In four days we will drive almost 450 km on gravel which is a good training for us before gravel season in Estonia and Latvia. It is important for us to finish the rally and drive smart because the roads in Portugal can be very rough for Group N car. As I said, this is a new rally for us and so we will go on step by step and our aim is to compare the speed with other Group N cars. And ofcourse as we are promoting auto24 Rally Estonia we have to show a good result!“
Urmo Aava, director of auto24 Rally Estonia: „auto24 Rally Estonia is held two weeks before Neste Oil Rally Finland. This makes our rally very attractive for teams and drivers in WRC. We are glad that Sander and Ken will promote the biggest autosport event in the Baltics. They are helping to introduce auto24 Rally Estonia in WRC.“
auto 24 Rally Estonia 2012 is held on 20-21th of July. It is the round of Estonian, Latvian, Baltic and NEZ Rally Championships and for the first time a round of FIA Historic European Sporting Rally Championship. More information: www.rallyestonia.ee and www.sanderparn.com
