Dear participants and guests,
On behalf of the Organising Committee I welcome you to the Cyprus Rally 2018 For decades our rally has been a fascinating event for contestants and spectators alike, something we expect to happen this year also. With our experience and our global award from the FIA as the best voluntary organising committee, we know exactly what it takes to host a successful rally and rest assured we are making sure this will be repeated.
Celebrating its 47th edition, this year’s rally will be held in mid-June, offering, both you and your teams as well as spectators, the opportunity to enjoy wonderful moments of relaxation in Cyprus’ beautiful coastal resorts.
Since 2009, the Cyprus Rally has been a mixed surface event combining both gravel and asphalt stages. IN the biggest change since 2017, the Rally will be based in Larnaca, something that takes place for the first time in the rally’s history. Both starting and finish ceremonies, the Rally Headquarters, the Press Office and the Service Park will be located in Larnaca’s seafront, a move that fits perfectly in the design of this year’s event, while at the same providing you with an opportunity to get to know Cyprus as a tourist destination, as the rally takes place in the midst of the summer season in one of the island’s main tourist resorts. Moreover, Larnaca features many historical sights, while offering many options for a night out, as one would expect from a contemporary city.
On Friday, June 15, the ceremonial start will take place in the Finikoudes beachfront, while racing will take place on Saturday and Sunday. Nicosia, will play host to a redesigned Super Special Stage, offering amble of excitement and competition. I welcome you in our island and I expect to meet all of you in the Larnaca beachfront in the afternoon of June 15.
