What are your goals in Rally Bulgaria?
Every time I get into our Porsche I feel real pleasure and have a lot of fun. So my first goal is to keep a smile on my face throughout the race.
We will try to provide a good show for the Bulgarian audience.
You have never competed in Bulgaria,
but you have someone to ask for rally advice here. What did your father tell you about this race?
Yes, this will be my first start in Bulgaria.
My father told me that the stages in Rally Bulgaria are fast, slippery and very technical, which makes the race very interesting, but also very difficult for the debutants in it.
But I like to race in new, unfamiliar places, so I’m sure I’ll have fun here too.
