Miguel Nunes has set for Rali Vinho da Madeira “the main goal of achieving the best outcome, hoping that I am able to repeat the 2020 triumph, nevertheless, there is a lot of strong competition. Many teams have the potential to win this competition. In the Madeiran Rallies we can already feel that we are pushing ourselves to the limit and the leading figures of such race will be here.
Besides the regional drivers, we should not forget the teams that are visiting us too, as they will try their best. For this rally we have nothing new, just a few setups in the car we already had before. Under the circumstances, it’s hard to do better.”
