Former Intercontinental Rally Challenge frontrunner Bruno Magalhaes has secured a full-time return to the European Rally Championship.
The multiple Portuguese champion took a dramatic victory on Rally Azores in 2010, moving from third to first on the final two stages when the works Skodas ahead hit trouble, and ended up fifth in that year's IRC standings.
Magalhaes has only competed sporadically over the past two seasons due to a funding shortfall.
The 33-year-old will begin his comeback in a Peugeot 207 Super 2000 on the Acropolis Rally, round three of the 2014 ERC, next month.
He will then upgrade to Peugeot's new 208 T16 for the rest of what is currently planned to be a six-round campaign.
