Dear Participants and Guests
Welcome to the 49th Cyprus Rally!
Our rally has been entertaining participants and spectators for decades, something we aim to continue with this iteration of our event. Our 50 years of experience, and our passion for this sport, arms us with all the resources to host a successful rally, making sure to deliver the best possible event.
It is my promise, as a member of the Organizing Committee, and that of every volunteer of this rally, that we will perform our duty diligently in order for us to enjoy a safe and exciting event.
The 2020 Cyprus Rally is facing the difficult times arising from the COVID-19 pandemic which forced us to make different planning than usual. Despite the difficulties and the various restrictions, the rally has been adjusted to meet all necessary standards. We promise that we will make our best to have a safe Cyprus Rally 2020.
The main course of the event will take place on Saturday, the 17th, and Sunday, the 18th of September, with 11 classic Special Stages on a mixed surface of asphalt and dirt! It should be noted that mix surface Stages were a world-first in our very own rally in 2009! As last year the rally itinerary comprises of semi mountainous Special Stages in the Nicosia district, famous for their demanding characteristics and spectacular vistas and turns.
The base of operations for the rally remains in Nicosia, with the Headquarters, Press Office and Service Park being situated in very close proximity to each other, just at the entrance of the city, right next to the Police Headquarters.
To sum up, I would like to welcome all crews from abroad to our island, and I am greatly looking forward to meeting all the participants and lovers of this sport at the Start Ceremony.
A heartfelt welcome to you all. Let us enjoy this year’s rally.
Keep safe and well,
Clerk of the Course
