A total of 66 crews from 26 countries on the Entry List

A total of 66 crews from 26 countries on the Entry List - 2

A total of 66 crews from five continents, 26 countries, eight of them Croatian on the Entry List for WRC Croatia Rally 2022. Young Finn Kalle Rovanpera arrives in Croatia as the leader in the WRC standings for the second consecutive year. His maiden Croatia Rally appearance is not remembered for good, he went off road on the very first Special Stage. This year he will be looking for points that would keep him on top. He will have a tough competition in Belgian Thierry Neuville and his own teammate Elfyn Evans. Neuville was the leader in Croatia after the first day of competition, but on Saturday he dropped the lead because of the wrong tyre choice. Evans, on the other hand, gave the win to Sebastien Ogier on the final corner of the Wolf Power Stage in Kumrovec. Fans declared this finale of the Croatia Rally a turning point of the 2021 season in the WRC poll. The author of the most attractive jump of last year's event, Frenchman Adrien Fourmaux, who set the crowd on fire at the Kostanjevac-Petruš Vrh speed test with a long flight, will also return. 
 
Croatian colours will be defended by eight crews led by the legendary Niko Pulic. The reigning Croatian champion Viliam Prodan has also entered for the rally, father and son Krešimir and Martin Ravenščak, Ivica Siladić and Željko Magličić will return to the Stages of the Croatia Rally, while Jan Pokos and Vjekoslav Čičko should have their premiere. Most Croatian crews have entered with Rally4 cars, while Siladic and Pulic will perform in the stronger classes. 

"Preparations for the most popular motorsport competition in the world with F1 and probably the biggest sporting event in Croatia in the last 30 years are in the full swing. Excitement with each passing day grows more and more, the last details are refined. We are eagerly preparing to welcome the best rally drivers of today, and for the first time in Croatia we will have crews from Brazil, Kenya, Mexico and even the United States. Teams will be coming here for testings soon, in order to prepare crews and cars for the WRC Croatia Rally. Octane sports fans are in for a great atmosphere and a rich program in fan zones, pictures of Croatia will reach millions of people around the world. I wish good luck to all drivers, especially our crews who will drive side by side with the biggest ones," said Daniel Šaškin, president of the Croatia Rally Organizing Committee.
