Rauf Denktash, the grandson of the deceased Turkish-Cypriot leader of the same name, is enrolled to take part in this year’s Cyprus Rally driving a Ford Fiesta S2000.
Denktash and his co-driver Dervish Bora will race under the colours of the Turkish Castrol team. He is considered one of the team’s best drivers and is expected to finish high in the final standings.
A press release from the Castrol Ford team said the six teams taking part in the event will give more impetus to the efforts being made for a Cyprus settlement.
This year’s rally features 12 Turkish and Turkish Cypriot teams from a total of 56 taking part in the event.
