Dani Sordo wants to shine before thousands of Spaniards in Portugal

The Spaniard has the best starting position and will try to take advantage of it in a test that Ogier has won five times and in which Neuville triumphed last year.

Dani Sordo returns to action surrounded by Spaniards. The Spaniard returns to the pit in the Rally of Portugal, a test in which thousands of fans go from our country, and which has always shone. Double reason to aspire to a great result in an event in which Sebastien Ogier has won five times, and in which last year Thierry Neuville triumphed.

The Portuguese test returns to the legendary tramos of Arganil in the first stage, a day in which there is no intermediate assistance, so there can be many surprises. Saturday and Sunday passes north, with the final culmination of the Fafe stage and its legendary jump, in which the extra points of the Power Stage will be distributed. The forecast is dry and sunny weather, with high temperatures, so the order of departure can be decisive on the first day.

Leaving tenth in the first stage, Sordo will find the roads completely clear of gravel, and that is why so it ensures that "my goal is to fight for the victory and get as many points as possible for the championship of brands. The Rally of Portugal is very beautiful, especially for us with the large number of fans who travel from Spain to support us. There is always a fantastic atmosphere, which makes it a pleasure to pilot there. We have had a rest since our last rally in Argentina, so we are well prepared. "

Ogier arrives at the top of his 'fetish' rally, but for that he will pay the toll to open the track on the first day. As always, Ott Tanak and Neuville will be their main rivals, although in this meeting there may be many roosters fighting for the victory. The unexpected participation of Sebastien Loeb, who achieved his first podium with Hyundai in Chile, will be another of the attractions of the test. In addition to Sordo and Carlos del Barrio, there will be many Spaniards in the race, as it is scoring for the Peugeot Rally Cup Ibérica.
