Following an impressive performance in the 2016 racing season, on Saturday Plamen Staykov and his navigator David Kvaratskhelia, known as „Staykov Racing“ and sponsored by Sofia Connect, were awarded the trophy for this year‘s rally championship by Bulgarian motor sport association „BFAS“.
Staykov Racing qualified on pole position thanks to winning Rally Tvarditsa-Elena, Romania Rally Challenge, Rally Sliven and Serbia Rally. The leading pair were never troubled for their positions at the front until technical issues prevented Staykov and Kvaratsheklia from competing in the Rally Bulgaria. Fortunately this drawback did not impact their leadership in the seasonal ranking gained during the previous races.
Plans for 2017 include to participate with their Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 9 in the European Rally Trophy for which Staykov Racing was nominated officially.
During the ceremony David Kvaratskhelia was also awarded as the Balkans‘ best co-driver by FIA and separately he received formal recognition from BFAS for his efforts to popularize motorsport internationally.
We at Sofia Connect warmly congratulate Plamen Staykov and David Kvaratskhelia for their successful efforts and wish them the best of luck for the 2017 rally season.
