75th Rally Poland in the ERC calendar

(Warsaw, 07.12.2017) The FIA World Motor Sport Council has confirmed the European Rally Championship 2018 calendar. 75th Rally Poland is among seven other rounds of the series constituting the penultimate event of the calendar held on 21-23 September in Mikołajki. The rally will also be the final round of the Polish Rally Championship. 

The Polish classic is the second oldest rally (first edition held in 1921) in the world being a bit younger only than the famous Rally Monte Carlo. Rally Poland was included in the European Rally Championship for the first time in 1960, just seven years after the inauguration of the series. The 75th edition of Rally Poland will constitute the round of the European Rally Championship for the 50th time!

In the past Rally Poland was organized in Cracow, Zakopane, Wrocław, Kłodzko and Polanica Zdrój. In 2005 the event moved to Mikołajki and has been held on gravel stages in Masuria area since then.

While planning the route of 75th Rally Poland the organizers from the Polish Automobile and Motorcycle Association take advantage of the best stages known from previous years including those being admired by crews competing in the Polish round of the FIA World Rally Championship. What’s more, Rally Poland will benefit from the unique sporting infrastructure that has been hugely developed in recent years including the circuit Mikołajki Arena and spacious service park next to Mikołajki’s Hotel Gołębiewski that bears the concrete surface.

Due to the FIA European Rally Championship regulations, the event’s format will be modified. The rally will be more compact comparing to previous years with the total length of special stages of 200 to 230 kilometers. The rivalry will start on Friday evening (21.09.2018) just after the free practice and the qualifying stage. The event will last till Sunday afternoon (23.09.2018).
