Countdown for 2007 Cyprus Rally
Nicosia, Oct 11 - Cyprus Rally, FIA Middle East Rally Championship (MERC) sixth round, begins tomorrow with 51 international and Cypriot crews making final preparations.
The Cyprus Rally, a candidate for a spot in the 2008 World Rally Championship calendar, is the second MERC event to be hosted by Cyprus after the Troodos Rally organised last April. The Troodos Rally, round 3 of this year’s MERC, was held in Cyprus back in April and ended with a clear victory for Qatar’s Nasser Al-Attiyah – the defending FIA Middle East and PWRC Champion – and co-driver Chris Patterson.
Once again based in Limassol, the island’s largest costal resort, the rally promises the many motorsport fans flocking to Cyprus a weekend packed full of action and excitement.
The organizers have already confirmed that this year will mark a revamped and revitalized Cyprus Rally with a number of new stages being introduced in the Troodos Mountains.
