WRC2: Robert Virves’ program kicks off in Sardinia

The 2024 program of the Estonian driver will start in Sardinia. In addition to the Italian leg, participation is planned in Poland and Latvia.

The name of Robert Virves is gaining more and more attention in the world of rally. After triumphing in the 2022 season of the Junior WRC, the young Estonian driver is preparing for a new and exciting adventure in WRC2, behind the wheel of the high-performing Škoda Fabia RS rally2. This car has been entrusted to him by the renowned Spanish team RaceSeven, promising great performances and thrilling challenges.

Virves’ race calendar for this year is already well defined. The anticipation is high for his debut with the new car at the Rally Italia Sardegna, scheduled in Alghero from May 30 to June 2. But the excitement does not end there: the driver will continue his adventure with the Rally of Poland, followed by the exciting addition of the Rally of Latvia. And more events are in store for him, with further announcements expected throughout the season.

Another big news for Virves in 2024 will be the return of a trusted companion: Aleks Leks, who will resume his role as co-driver. This duo has already shown a solid harmony in the past, and their return to the scenes together promises to be an added value to their performances.

The decision to switch from the Ford Fiesta rally2 to the more powerful Škoda Fabia RS rally2 represents a significant step forward for Virves. After a nine-month break away from racing, the Estonian driver has eagerly announced his return to the WRC World Circuit. The debut at the Rally Italia Sardegna will mark the beginning of this new and promising phase of his career.

Virves has expressed deep gratitude towards all those who supported him during his inactive period. He has assured that the Rally Italia Sardegna will not be his only appearance in the WRC2 for this season. With races in Poland and Latvia on the agenda, and the possibility of further participations yet to be defined, the Estonian champion is ready to take on the challenge.

On board the Škoda Fabia RS rally2 and with the support of the RaceSeven team and its partners, Robert Virves is more determined than ever. The young talent has all the tools to do well and overcome new challenges in this exciting rally season. The motorsport world is eagerly awaiting to see this promising driver showcase all his potential on the WRC2 tracks
