Armindo Araújo (born 1 September 1977) is a Portuguese rally driver. He won the Production World Rally Championship in the 2009 season, repeating the accomplishment in the next year (2010 season), to become the first pilot to ever win this cup twice in a row since its creation back in 2002.

Career[edit]

Araújo during the 2007 Rally GB.

Araújo began rallying in 2000, having raced motorcycles since 1994. Between 2000 and 2004 he used a Citroën Saxo on Portuguese national events, winning the National Championship in 2003 and 2004, before winning the title again in 2005 and 2006 using a Group N Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII.

In 2007 he began competing in the Production World Rally Championship (P-WRC), finishing 14th in the standings.[1] In 2008 he finished eighth in the P-WRC standings. In 2009 he won the P-WRC class on Rally de Portugal, and two other podium finishes led to him winning the P-WRC.
