Miroslav Angelov is absolute favorite in national championship, but there are stil some different scenarios
The crew of „Megaport” Miroslav Angelov and Eddie Sivov (Skoda Fabia R5) had to win the title in the National Rally Championship of the previous round still in Serbia, but annoying plot and denouement left tied for the final start. Angelov crached on the final stage and dropped a sure win for the Bulgarian Championship, allowing Tihomir Stratiev and Dobrin Borisov (Peugeot 208 R2) to catch up much of the lag in the Provisional rankings.
Angelov remains absolute favorite because his car is better. There were some question for delivery of the spare parts for his Skoda Fabia R5. They arrive on time and evetything is okay. The crew of „Megaport” have 10 points in advance in front of his main rivals Tihomir Stratiev/Dobrin Borisov.
Among the favorites is crew of the eight time champion Dimitar Iliev and four time title holder Krum Donchev. Both have won the rally twice, and they will try to do it again. But, this time, like a team! Just 10 days ago Dimitar and Krum have decided to participate in this year’s start together. They will compete with Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX and will switch places on the pilot and co-driver.
Georgi Vasilev and Stefan Dobrev (Mistubishi Lancer with Evo IX), als have chances of win the title, but only only theoretical. The crew of the “Daniel racing” is third in the standings with 42.2 points behind the liders and can reach the Championship honors only when dropping and Angelov, and Stratiev. Similar is the situation with Jordan Atanasov and fourth and Yanaki Yanakiev (Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX), who finally found the reason for the constant problems with differentials and in pure race can surprise even Angelov.
