Donchev, who has won the Sliven Rally on four occasions in the past, will pilot a Peugeot 207 Super 2000 on the event.
He said: “When I started in rally I learned that you have to fight against all competitors so everybody will be a rival to me. I know the other drivers will push from the beginning and I will do the same. It’s going to be a very interesting rally but a very difficult rally too.”
Donchev is the fourth seed on the all-asphalt rally, which gets underway with a superspecial stage in host city Sliven at 20:00hrs local time tonight.
