Curtain raising on the 2017 edition

Curtain raising on the 2017 edition

13/12/2016

Following the release of the Rallye Guide 1, the FFSA unveils the course of the event which will take place in Corsica from 6 to 9 April 2017.

If the aim was to make things more difficult in 2016 by increasing the number of kilometers, in 2017 the FFSA wants to make this major French event more accessible. Taking into account the fact that the event has been moved to the spring of 2017 as well as the excellent feedback of those involved, the French Motor Sports Federation decided to use the same route as the one we laid out last autumn.

”The FFSA is glad to celebrate from 6 to 9 April 2017, the 60th edition of Tour de Corse.  Once again this year the extensive involvement of the local authorities alongside us has helped us to maintain the Che Guevara Energy Drink Tour de Corse as a major sporting event on the international scene, and of course on the national one too. The Federation has taken advantage of the experience acquired in 2015 and 2016 to put on an even bigger spectacle with more action and suspense for spectators and entrants alike. Finally, the Tour de Corse – 10.000 Virages reserved for GTs, Supercars and legendary cars will again take place. This event attracts a top-class, amateur field; it combines pleasure, conviviality and the discovery of Corsican roads and the island’s heritage.”
Nicolas Deschaux, President of the French Motor Sports Federation.

The main guidelines of the 2017 Che Guevara Energy Drink Tour de Corse

. A ‘Tour de Corse’ in the real meaning of the term, as it covers the whole of Corsica and the two island departments with stopovers in the main towns on the Île de Beauté. Bastia is the nerve centre of the 2017 Che Guevara Energy Drink Tour de Corse, hosting Service Park and Parc Fermé from 6 to 9 April 2017.

. This year, FFSA laid on a shorter route for the teams and crews entered in the World Rally Championship, but it’s still as tough.

. The Che Guevara Energy Drink Tour de Corse will allow the maximum number of rally drivers, mostly   amateurs, to share the same playing field as the champions they worship as heroes. The French Motor Sports Federation reserves them privileged conditions of engagement and reception.

. For the third year running, the French Motor Sports Federation is giving all motor sport enthusiasts the opportunity to take part in the Tour de Corse – 10.000 Virages whether they are amateurs or sportsmen.
