Second round of the 2022 FIA ERC takes Team MRF Tyres to an island paradise



The second round of the 2022 FIA European Rally Championship see Team MRF Tyres return to the Azores Rallye held on São Miguel Island, the largest island in the Azorean archipelago.



Efrén Llarena and Sara Fernández have experience in the Azores and will compete strongly for Team MRF Tyres




The three Team MRF Tyres crews will face 14 stages and 205km of competitive action on the gravel roads that wind their way through the island.



It was a successful outing in the Azores in 2021 for the team having taken second place and the are looking to capitalise on the extensive development program that MRF Tyres undertook over the past couple of seasons.



The Azores Rallye has a mythical reputation in the rally work, helped by the Sete Cidades stage, that runs on the rim of a volcano and is a stage that all drivers want to win.



Simone Campedelli and Tania Canton come to the island for the first time in their Skoda Fabia Rally2 evo.



They will be looking to draw on the experience of Efrén Llarena and Sara Fernández who have competed here many times before. They are looking to turn their experience into a top result for Team MRF Tyres.



Equally, Norbert Herczig and Igor Bacigál are looking to build on their experience on the Azores and bring home a good result for Team MRF Tyres, along with valuable data for the on-going development of the tyre.



The action gets underway on Friday afternoon with a qualifying stage before Saturday and Sunday both see seven stages held across the island.



The Team MRF Tyres crews are aiming to demonstrate the pace that saw the team win the opening round of the Italian Rally Championship – Gravel last weekend with Paolo Andreucci and Rudy Briani at the Rally della Val D'Orcia.




Norbert Herczig and Igor Bacigál had a successful test to get the car set up for the gravel challenge that the Azores will provide for Team MRF Tyres





It was an ideal way for Andreucci to defend his Championship that he won in 2021 with Team MRF Tyres. Additionally, Jacopo Trevesani and Andrea Marchesini took fourth for the team.



On the Azores, MRF Tyres will be represented by customer cars with Igor Widlak and Daniel Dymurski in their Ford Fiesta Rally3. They took a class podium in the first round of the Championship.



Every stage of the rally can be seen live on the WRC+ All Live app and you can follow Team MRF Tyres on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
