Kopecký won the ERC season-opening International Jännerrallye in Austria last month and is set to return to ERC action on the island event in a ŠKODA Motorsport Fabia Super 2000. Kopecký won Rally Islas Canarias in 2010 and 2012.

Although no official confirmation has been forthcoming from ŠKODA Motorsport, event organisers tweeted: “He isn't still registered, but we can count on him.”

The all-asphalt rally features 14 stages over a competitive distance of 246.34 kilometres.

Following the ceremonial start in Las Palmas on 21 March, the action begins with the 13.57-kilometre Moya stage on 22 March and finishes with the 16.23-kilometre Vallesco stage the following day.
