Peñate is already conducting tests in Greece. «It is always good news to return to mythical rallies like the Acropolis, it has been 9 years since I was in this tough rally. It will be a nice experience to start the rally competing inside the Athens Olympic Stadium (220km from the Service Park). The first stage with 7 stages without assistance is the perfect example that it will not be an easy rally. In Greece we will be part of the MSport Poland team, which gives us
a plus of confidence for a rally where
reliability is important To reach the finish line without problems, we hope to find our rhythm that already gave us victory options in Italy and Kenya”, he indicated.
«On Sunday we carried out a test where we were able to adjust different parameters of the new Fiesta Rally3 with which we will face a new WRC3 rally, everything went as we wanted and
we are prepared to be one more rally fighting for victory»commented the islander.
