Entries open for 2018 Tour de Corse!

02/02/2018

With eight weeks to go to the start of the event the French Motor Sports Federation (FFSA) is opening the entry list for the 2018 Tour de Corse, which will take place from 5th to 8th April. Professional and amateur entrants have until 5th March to enter on line for the rally.

Once again the “Ile de Beauté” will host five categories between 5-8 April: the WRC for the top drivers, the last step before the blue-riband category, the RGT Cup for the best homologated GTs, WRC2 for 4-wheel-drive cars, WRC3 for 2-wheel-drive cars and the Junior WRC for under 28-year-old drivers.

AMATEURS CAN ALSO BECOME PART OF THE LEGEND

This year the best rally drivers in France can again enter for the Tour de Corse at preferential rates (1350 euros for the FFSA licence holders, 1250 euros for FFSA licence holders living on the island), and appear in the overall results of the rally with a car in the National category (vehicle homologated by the FFSA). Amateurs wishing to take part in the event must hold an ICCCR licence issued by the FFSA. In addition to the preferential prices offered by Corsica Linea, GT2i vouchers of a total of 6500 euros can be won. And a prize of 500 euros will be awarded to the first three in the 2018 Tour de Corse Amateurs Trophy.

PRACTICAL INFORMATION

The entry forms and the regulations are available on the official website: www.tourdecorse.com , in the section Competitors > Official Documents. Closing date for entries is 5th March 2018.

THE MAIN OUTLINES OF THE 2018 TOUR DE CORSE

The Tour de Corse is the fourth round of the 2018 season and the first on tarmac over a route that has been revamped by around 60% compared to 2017. Particular features on the programme of this year’s event are the start given on the Place Saint-Nicolas in Bastia, the rediscovery of the roads in Cap Corse and Cortenais and the finish on the mythical Place du Diamant in Ajaccio for the crews who have survived the 333,50 kms of special stages. Thanks to the preferential entry conditions on offer, the FFSA will give amateur licence holders the opportunity to share the same playing field as the world’s top guns and race in the tyre tracks of Sébastien Ogier and Sébastien Loeb!
