Leading the line-up is the new WRC2 champion Pontus Tidemand and his co-driver Jonas Andersson. The Swedish pairing have won four of their six WRC2 rallies this year and finished on the podium in the other two. They came second at this event last season and are looking to go one better this time round.
Making his debut for ŠKODA Motorsport at this event is the young Norwegian Ole Christian Veiby. Alongside co-driver Stig Rune Skjærmoen, he has impressed in a ŠKODA FABIA R5 this year in the Norwegian Rally Championship, in the FIA Asia-Pacific Championship and in WRC events, including taking a victory in the WRC2 category at the Rally Poland.
And joining them are the young Finns Juuso Nordgren / Tapio Suominen who are hoping to build on an impressive fourth place finish in the WRC2 standings at the Rally Catalunya.
