Ligato is back in the PWRC after a six-year absence and will pilot a Subaru Impreza run by the Italian Top Run team.
He said: “I always fight for the title and this year we can make a very good job. I have more experience and that is important in the PWRC. You must be very careful all the time and try to run with this in mind, not flat-out all the time. It’s very important to finish all the rallies and I think my experience now is better than before.”
Ligato’s preparations for the gravel counter haven’t quite gone to plan after he was prevented from conducting a pre-event test.
“We have a problem with the time of arrival of the car in Buenos Aires and the car arrived when we started the recce,” Ligato explained. “We couldn’t test before, but I made some laps in the shakedown. The car is very easy to drive. I feel good and we must find a good speed for the rally and not lose that idea.”
