Just a week for the entries’ deadline of the Rally Madeira Legend, a competition that will hit the roads on the 29th and 30th October, and there are already forty confirmed drivers in the Club Sports da Madeira Organization. Besides these drivers, about 20 have shown their interest in such event and should, in the next few days, complete their entry applications in the competition that will have Pedro Melvill Araújo as the Clerk of the Course.
Amongst the enrolled participants, there are many motorsport references, both in a regional and national level, in a list that includes regional and national champions, as well as the world champion, Massimo Biasion. The not yet confirmed presence of a few drivers is due to the logistic problems that a few teams are facing to bring to Madeira their vehicles, which will also take part in some other similar international competitions.
The list of vehicles already enrolled in the start of the competition is very eclectic and includes several generations of models that have been making, for many years, the delight of the growing number of enthusiasts of this type of competition. Different models of Ford, Audi and Lancia will fill an outstanding sample of vehicles from the group B, as well as several vehicles of the nostalgic group N and A will also be highlighted. One of the curious aspects of this competition will be the presence of Rui Ribeiro’s Ford Escort Mk I, which won, in 1975, the Rali Vinho da Madeira with “Janica” Clemente behind the wheel.
