Polish Mountain Rally Championships
The Grand Prix event in Tricity is a part of Polish Mountain Rally Championships. The whole event consists of 14 rounds, which take place in various, picturesque locations around the country. Tricity hosts the 9th and the 10th round of the race.
A spectacular location
The street connecting Gdynia Karwiny with Sopot Brodwino areas is truly a charming location. It is a road leading downhill through the forest of the Tricity Landscape Park. As a result, the organizers could create a track consisting of 18 difficult turns. The drivers are challenging the time on the distance of 3050 meters. This all creates an extraordinary experience for drivers as well as fans gathered to see the Grand Prix.
The organizers of 20th Grand Prix Sopot-Gdynia informed that the starting list of the event is the largest for many years. Among 71 participants, we will see the top 3 drivers of the general classification of the Championships. The fans will have an opportunity to see Waldemar Kluza in his Skoda Fabia S2000, Dubai in Mitsubishi Lancer Ber Monster as well as Roman Baran in Mitsubishi Lancer Evo. Additionally, the spectators will see drivers harnessing such mechanical beasts as Subaru Impreza, BMW M3, VW Golf GTI and many more. The classic sports car brand Porsche has its representatives as well.
On Saturday fans saw races of the 9th round of the championships. Sunday starts at 9:30 with training runs. The first round of race runs will start at 12:30 and the second round will begin at 13:30.
If then you haven’t made plans for Sunday and you like fast cars, 20th Grand Prix Sopot-Gdynia is a place for you to be.
