Rally Croatia 2021 will become the 34th country to host an FIA World Rally Championship. It will be the first all-asphalt meeting since August 2019 and a mix of smooth and very bumpy roads – and everything in between – will present a serious challenge. After a two-month break and the capital city of Zagreb is the base for three days of fast asphalt action. Although there is a vote on the official website, someone is now betting which driver will win the rally in Croatia. I recommend you to remember that every driver knows this round of asphalt well. Furthermore, the competition between the rally teams is very heated. Thus, M-Sport focuses on getting to the top, while Toyota rally cars are instructed to defend themselves against Hyundai Motorsport.

According to the official wrc website, Kalle Rovanpera is already arrived to Croatia this weekend as the youngest World Championship leader and his Toyota Gazoo Racing is leading the manufacturers “standings. Younger Finn remains cool like all the other drivers, but all are fulfilled by the desire to win and to add the name to WRC history.
