VIVACOM Rally Team

VIVACOM Rally Team is the team of the five-time champion in the Bulgarian Rally Championship Dimitar Iliev and the navigator Yanaki Yanakiev. In 2009 VIVACOM for the first time supported a team of the National Rally Championship and chose its new model person that fully reflects the values and goals of a dynamic and efficient telecom. The company invests in the Bulgarian automobile sports and supports one of the best Bulgarian teams and sportsmen in this discipline as their successes are successes of the whole Bulgarian nation. In this case, too, the choice of a sport is based entirely on one of the corporate values - dynamism. The Iliev and Yanakiev''s team is now called VIVACOM Rally Team because rally sports are distinguished by dynamism and high speed, just as the telecommunication services offered by VIVACOM.

The team received this car of the highest class owing to its partnership with the telecom that was extended for additional two years. The vehicle''s design was chosen through a national design competition that was held in March 2010. 199 projects from Bulgaria and abroad took part in it.
