While organisers of the FIA European Rally Championship-counting Barum Czech Rally Zlín are progressing their preparations for the 50th edition of the sealed-surface event, Ekaterina Stratieva is aiming to start in Zlín for a 12th time.
After being given the freedom of the city of Zlín when she made her 10th start in 2018, Stratieva can’t wait to make her return to the all-asphalt rally, which is set to celebrate turning 50 from August 27-29 after the rally was not run in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Barum Rally will be on my calendar,” said Stratieva. “But I have been an honorary citizen of the city of Zlín for several years and I will not forget to go home to all my fans. I expect it to be a very interesting competition considering it’s the anniversary edition.”

Ahead of her ERC campaign beginning, Stratieva and co-driver Georgi Avramov are contesting their home round of the FIA Balkan Rally Trophy, International Rally Bulgaria, from today (May 14) and until Sunday.
