4 cities visited DURING YPRES HISTORIC REGULARITY 2019
"We have not changed anything about the initial concept, except for some fine tuning. Just as the European rally drivers will be presented with a sporty and compact program in June, the regularity specialists will also have to deal with the same challenges," says Norbert Dumoulin, competition leader. "But in addition to our fixed concept, we have expanded the program for this second edition. During the three-day event, this year the caravan will visit 4 host municipalities en route. An innovation we are proud of, because in every host municipality where the caravan descends, there will be an old-fashioned motorsport atmosphere to sniff and we will organise either a service zone or a stamp check or a closed regularity ride where many spectators can see the participants in action in complete safety. "Of course, the exact course - as is the intention of the event - will be kept strictly secret, but we will give you the 4 host municipalities and the exact program per host city first!
