CNP Asfalistiki Cyprus Rally - 01-01/01/1970
With its origins dating back to 1970, the mixed-surface Cyprus Rally returns to the ERC for the first time since 1999. While a move away from the famous Troodos Mountains due to the risk of forest fires means faster and less punishing stages, high ambient and ground temperatures will provide a big test for car and crew. This year’s event, which also counts for Middle East championship points, begins with a landmark test through the streets of the capital Nicosia. Part of the route runs in the United Nations-controlled buffer zone between the historic city’s Greek Cypriot and Turkish areas.
