Sakis is running a very limited schedule this year in order to manage the development of the Eurosport Junior Team. Co-driving duties will be handled by Luis Figueiredo, who regularly rides with the Junior team. They will be competing in an Open class Subaru Impreza Turbo. The car is just off a recent test at the Sand Hills Club Rally, where it experienced a few bugs. With the testing difficulties sorted out, Sakis is looking for a top finish this weekend. "The car is running very strong and should be very competitive on the Pennsylvania roads," explained Sakis. "The competition may be the toughest ever and with the level of competitors getting better at each event, a top overall position will not be easy." STPR is a favorite event for Sakis. He enjoys the fast, yet very technical roads that make up the stages.
