Thus, the Japanese manufacturer has four Yaris in Rally1. Concerning points eligibility, Toyota trusts its strong men Elfyn Evans, Sébastien Ogier and Kalle Rovanperä.

Leading the world championship, Thierry Neuville will have to waste as little time as possible on Friday as opener in order to hope to be in contention for victory until Sunday. With 6 points ahead of Elfyn Evans in the Drivers' standings, the representative of Hyundai will have to avoid all the pitfalls of Portuguese soil which could have hurt competitors in the past.

This 2024 Rally Portugal will be contested over 22 special stages for a total of 337,04 timed kilometers.

Passionate about the history of motorsport across all disciplines, I learned to read thanks to AUTOhebdo. At least that's what my parents tell everyone when they see my name inside!
