Pedro Paixão will be driving in Rali Vinho da Madeira “as fast as possible. Nevertheless, the most important is to finish. Of course I would like to win this rally, as it is a childhood dream, but my main rivals are quite strong. I think, above all, in my main opponents in the regional competition. If will be a difficult task, as they have a lot more experience than we do in a competition that such fact may be crucial. Despite that, our speed can stand out.”
