On Friday, the Baja Aragon will start around Teruel in Spain. Erik van Loon will join Hein Verschuuren in the Can-Am for a sporty revenge after the issues in Italy. In a very strong field of participants, it will be a difficult task to go on stage, but Van Loon will take over. In addition to hopes on the stage, Van Loon wants to have fun and get a good ride.

“In my opinion, this start-up is equivalent to the Dakar Rally,” says Van Loon. “With 31 T3, it’s a field full of very good drivers. This will be a nice challenge. In Italy we had technical problems with the car, hopefully they are now solved and we can just drive. I also enjoy driving again together with Hein, it will be the first time we do Cross Country together. Of course, we did a lot of rally, but this is a bit different. He has driven this type of rally several times, so that’s not going to be a problem. We are willing!”

The Baja Aragon starts on Thursday 20 July with the checks. On Friday morning, the short prologue starts around 8:30, this is a small 6 km long, it determines the starting positions for the first 180 km test, which is travelled in the afternoon. Two trials are scheduled on Saturday, the first start at 7:30 and is 155 kilometers long and in the afternoon a 171 kilometers test will be completed. The rally can be watched live on
