Sibiu Rally organisers have attracted a record-breaking entry for round seven of the FIA European Rally Championship, it has been confirmed.

A total of 68 crews - two less than the 70-car capacity - have registered for the exciting event in Romania, which uses a mixture of gravel and asphalt stages - including some run at night - and takes place from 25-27 July.

Event organiser Sorin Itu was naturally delighted with the amount of interest in his rally: "I am very happy because we established a new record of entries at Sibiu Rally. I am sure that a very interesting battle will unfold between the local drivers and those who come from abroad, which will translate into a very good show for the spectators. I would also really like to establish a new record of attending spectators onto the special stages."
