Making its fourth appearance on the WRC calendar, Croatia Rally is the first pure tarmac encounter of the season. After its popular debut, Croatia Rally’s expanded itinerary in 2022 returns for the 2023 season. The grip level of the fast and narrow roads varies greatly across the stages, with some sections much rougher than others due to weather and water damage. Following the tragic passing of driver Craig Breen during the the pre-event test, we will enter just two cars into this year’s edition of the event. Both competing i20 N Rally1 Hybrids will adorn a special livery to honour his life and career.
Croatia Rally 2022 proved successful for Hyundai, with five stage wins and the first double podium of the season. Ott/Martin finished second overall at the first tarmac event of the year, with team-mates Thierry/Martijn just behind them in third place.
