After incredible rally season in 2014, when EAMV team became the fastest team in Estonian rally championship which is the strongest in Baltic states with Alexey Lukyanuk and Alexey Arnautov, we started prepare for 2015 racing season. We have concluded a contract with one of the fastest rally driver in Lithuania – Deividas Jocius, and he joined the team for 2015 rally season. Also Vaidotas Žala changed the car from Subaru Impreza to Mitsubishi EVO, and this all promised an exciting rally season for our team in 2015.
