Rally Catalunya Històric
The RACC defines the details of the 3rd Rally Catalunya Històric-Rally de Les Caves
· The entry period is open until 12 February
The RACC has published the Regulations of the 3rd Rally Catalunya Històric, the Premium rally for classic vehicles that will be staged on 1 and 2 March 2019, with start and finish in Barcelona. In this edition, the itinerary will recall the Rally de Les Caves, a former event that was integrated into Rally Catalunya in 1973, when it covered the regions of Anoia, Alt and Baix Penedès and surroundings.
The Rally Catalunya Històric-Rally de Les Caves is a regularity race for classic cars staged on road sections that are closed to the traffic and with two different averages to choose from. The eligible vehicles are those built between 1947 and 1984, grouped in 6 classes, although vehicles built between 1985 and 1988 will be accepted as well. The entry period will continue open until 12 February.
In this third edition, the image of the Rally Catalunya Històric will include as a novelty the corporate yellow colour of the RACC as a highlight in the background of the rally plate and the official poster. The combination of black letters on yellow background provides for a colourfulness that will highlight the visibility of these identifying objects of the event.
