Organisers planning “several innovations” for ERC Azores Rallye
Organisers of the Azores Rallye, the planned opening round of the 2019 FIA European Rally Championship*, have announced the introduction of “several innovations” on the route of the gravel showcase.
Based on the island of São Miguel in the mid-Atlantic from 21-23 March, the Azores Rallye is ranked as one of the most spectacular on the planet.
This year’s event will again feature a Monday test, two days of reconnaissance, the ever-popular City Show in host city Ponta Delgada on Wednesday 20 March, albeit with a tweaked layout, plus three days of competition from Thursday 21 March.
A statement from the event organising team read: “The 2019 Azores Rallye keeps the usual three-day format, but with several innovations in terms of special stages that will be known later.”
Entries open on Monday 11 February and close on Friday 1 March. The event programme is available by clicking here.
