Details released in a provisional entry list published by the organisers of the 2018 Vodafone Rally of Portugal already show a huge entry increase over last year. This puts the entry at a level comparable to last month’s Tour de Corse. There are 14 World Rally Cars, with four entered by Hyundai Motorsport, one car for each team driver, and three from Citroen Racing, including Mads Ostberg. Hayden Paddon has been chosen by Hyundai as an official points scoring driver rather than Dani Sordo. There are 17 entries in WRC2 and 14 in the Junior WRC. A disappointing non-entry is that of Gaurav Gill, who is embarking on a WRC R5 challenge sponsored by MRF this year. In all there are 32 R5 cars, a total of 88 cars so far (Corsica had 92 entries, of which 87 actually started), compared with 64 starters in Portugal last year. The FIA has still not confirmed their approval to this list.
