Next week-end is held the first round of the 2008 french gravel rallies championship, in southern France, the Rallye Terre de Provence :D

Very good entrylist for this event with a few WRCs(among them no less than two Skodas !!) and many many GrNs !!!

Youngster Yoann Bonato will drive for the first time Didier Auriol Competition's Octavia WRC :)

Among non-french drivers at least three are coming from Belgium(the famous Munster, Bruyneel and Colsoul all in GrN cars), one from Switzerland, Jean-Thierry Vacheron(206 XS), one German, Karl-Friedrich Beck(206 XS) and another one I've never heard before, crew number 34 on the entrylist...

Full entrylist:

№ 34 - it's Russian crew: businness driver Denis Grodetsky and professional co-driver Safoniy Lotko.
First of them is newcomer for French rallies, second was in France twenty years ago - as a co-driver of Alexander Potapov from works team Moskvich.

I don't think it was planned for him to run the french gravel this season :confused:

He would have written it in his official press release... ;)

Is there a chance that Yoann Bonato runs more gravel rallies in France with the Octavia WRC?
