Suzuki Swift Sport

For 3 years we have been competing in the Suzuki Swift Cup, a class dedicated to the 2015 Sport model of the Suzuki Swift. Only original parts could be used, which made the competition exciting because everyone was using the same racing material. Only skill would separate the contestants.

Bogdan Talasman

Date of birth: 1.03.1980
First race: Campulung hill climbing 2009

I got into rallying in 2008, with a car built by me and some friends, after being a “professional spectator” for almost 10 years. The virus came from my father, my first memory with him being at a race. I raced a lot of cars, winning the Dacia Cup in 2015, but I consider that my best driving is with the Suzuki in the last three years.

It’s a great experience to drive the Mitsubishi! I enjoy it a lot and I’m sure the best is yet to come!
