It's rally-week again, and the Petter Solberg World Rally Team is already on sight in Istanbul, for the Rally of Turkey. -- We have been here for a few days now for pre event testing, and I am so pleased with my rally car, says Petter Solberg. -- It feels so good, and right now I
almost can't wait until the rally starts.
We have an anniversary to celebrate this weekend, also. Rally of Turkey is Petter Solberg and Phil Mills' 150 WRC event together. -- 150 WRC events, that's a lot! I do hope we have many more to come, says Petter. -- To me, Phil is the best codriver, he knows exactly how everything should be, always!
This year the rally is moved up to Istanbul, with the service park based in Pendik. Stages will all be in the Asian part of Turkey, while the official start ceremony on Thursday evening will be in European part, surrounded by the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia.
23 stages will be contested during the upcoming weekend, and 43 cars are on the entry list.
