The famous French pilot François Delecour, specially invited at Sibiu Rally by the organizers of Dacia Cup, took part to the races in this stage of the CNR Dunlop driving a Dacia Logan 1.6 90 CP. In spite of being for the first time in Romania and at this first participation to the tests of the most difficult macadam rally, he imposed himself on the first position for class N.
The most faster Logan at the Sibiu Rally, produced in Romania in the Dacia Factory in Mioveni has been prepared by the Mach 1 workrooms to be able to face the 11 special tests and the 440 km of the stage in Sibiu. Delecour had to support the same restrictions like all the other competitors at Dacia Cup. But he will not step in the Cup classification, as far as there is to talk of only one participation.
The pilot fighting for the daises at WRC during 1984-2002 came back to the competitional activity in occasion of the centennial of the Monte Carlo Rally. All long his career, Francois Delecour won four victories in Rally World Championship and took the dais 19 times.
