Dakar-driver Annie Seel to Rally Estonia Historic, 17-19 july
Very last minute it is confirmed that Swedish rally driver Annie Seel will participate in the Auto 24 Rally Estonia Historic.
Last year she was a co-driver in Estonia, and enjoyed the event she now returns.
And this year she will be driving her Toyota Starlet 1.3 lit.
Annie Seel, also known as the Rally Princess, is one of the few women drivers competing in both motorcycle and car rallies. She has completed five Dakar rallies on motorcycle, and in January this year she switched to drive a car for the first time.
In car rallies she is still considering herself a beginner, and this will be her first European Championship rally. In Sweden she has raced the Toyota Starlet in the Midnight Sun Rally Historic only three times, but still winning the 1300 class in 2012 and 2013.
– I have been looking forward to the Rally Estonia since I was here last year. It was a great event, and I know it will be even better this year – because now I am driving myself.
The co-driver will be Marcus Sundh, who accompanied Annie in the Midnight Sun Rally 2013.
