The Cyprus Rally 2015 will take place between 25-27th September with the participation of competitors from the European and the Middle East Rally Championships. A Super Special Stage of the rally will pass, as it did for the first time last year, across the Green Line into North Nicosia.
Running for 664.18 kilometre, the 16 stage rally is the only rally worldwide which hosts two FIA-sanctioned rounds, the eighth round of the European Rally Championship and the fifth round of the Middle East Rally Championship.
Cyprus Automobile Association President Antonis Michaelides told CNA that the Super Special Stage of the Rally, that will take place on 26th September, in the centre of Nicosia, will cross, as it did last year, the Green Line, dividing the capital, to the North.
He said that “… certain special measures will be taken within the buffer zone,” which is patrolled by UNFICYP
Michaelides stressed that all terms and conditions for all special stages would apply all along this stage as well, and that the Cyprus Automobile Association was the only organiser and supervisor of the Super Special Stage.
During the rally, competitors will head out of the town to tackle the special stages situated in the Nicosia and Larnaca districts. The event features mixed surface stages of gravel and tarmac.
Larnaca will be the hosting city for the ceremonial start and the finish of the rally.
