|Balkan Offroad: 2000 km, low starting fees, 4 countries, licence free, awards.|
The licence-free [ BALKAN OFFROAD ] Rally 2012 is the biggest rally in the Balkan Region and will be held from September 7th until 14th.
The Rally will cross the four countries Albania, Macedonia, Bulgaria and Greece - 2.000 kms overall. The start will be in Tirana, the capital of Albania, the finish will be in Igumenitsa in Greece.
The starting fees are low, the travel to Albania and back can be organized via Ferry from Italy. The program of the rally will be published soon - "You can expect interesting and attractive routes and a race full of emotions and fun" the organizer Todor Hristov said.
In 2010 the rally was held in Bulgaria and Greece and the landscape was incredible: Untouched forests and valleys, muddy areas, gravel, fast stony WRC tracks and tough offroad pists. 2011 the rally was held only in the south-east of Bulgaria - in 2012 the rally will be bigger the ever.
"We like to install a rally like the former ´Central Europe Rally´, but open and payable for everybody. Four countries and 2000 kilometers are a big step for us - and a great opportunity for offroad fans" organizer Todor Hristov said.
The rally is open for Motobikes, Quads, Buggies, Side-By-Side, UTV, Cars and Trucks, a licence and FIA / FIM regulation is not requested - so participants can also start with Amateur vehicles.
As a result of collaboration and partnership between the organizers of the [ INTERCONTINENTAL RALLY ] and "Balkan Offroad", the awards for the winners in the "Balkan Offroad 2012" are very great: The winners in the overall standings in the category Cars, Motos and ATV/Quad get free entry in the Intercontinental Rally 2013.
