The entry list for the Rally Portugal is fairly extensive, with 74 entries in the race. Making headlines is the one-off return of Marcus Gronholm to the WRC from his retirement. He will be participating in a 2008 Subaru Impreza WRC run by Prodrive, the company that ran the Subaru World Rally Team.

Also making news is the return of the Adapta World Rally Team. Adapta, which lent Prodrive Gronholm's car (his livery is different), will be led again by Mads Ostberg who will be piloting a similar 2008 Subaru Impreza WRC.

The Merksteijn Motorsports team returns as well, with two cars, a 2006 Ford Focus WRC and a 2007 Ford Focus WRC driven by father and son Peter and Peter Jr Merksteijn.This makes the WRC-class 18 cars strong providing a larger field than the three previous events this year.
