The 2nd Poppy Rally
The inaugural Poppy Rally in 2009 was a great success with UK crews mixing in with the local Belgian competitors. Once again George Mullins, who many of you know from other CRA events, is the Clerk of the Course and route master. George is working with his friends in the Ypres motor club and can be relied on to provide a memorable weekend of rallying.

The inaugural Poppy Rally in 2009 was a great success with UK crews mixing in with the local Belgian competitors. Once again George Mullins, who many of you know from other CRA events, is the Clerk of the Course and route master. George is working with his friends in the Ypres motor club and can be relied on to provide a memorable weekend of rallying.

 

The compact Saturday & Sunday format of the Poppy Rally is ideal for those who struggle to find time for our usual week long events. As before the event will be a competitive action packed road event based in the motor sport mecca of Ypres in the Flanders region of Belgium.

 

The tight intricate nature of the roads will create a challenge for both driver and navigator, and a good selection of non damaging sealed surface tests (no reversing) will ensure maximum enjoyment for all competitors. The majority of the route information will be issued in advance along with copies of the IGN 1:50,000 maps giving you plenty of time to plot and mark your map in the style that you prefer. Some route information will be given in the form of marked copies of the same maps allowing you, if you wish to copy the route onto the maps previously provided.

 

 

Ypres - The Belgian motorsport mecca

Our Rally HQ for the weekend will be the centrally located Novotel. Parking has been arranged for you just around the corner and the bars of the Grote Markt are just a short stroll away.

 

We are delighted to once again be working with the local organisers in Belgium and also for 2011 those from just across the border in France. In 2011 we have the added prestige of the event being included as a round of the FIA Trophy for Regularity Rallies.

 

Many of you will be doing other events such as the Classic Marathon and Winter Challenge that are also rounds of this Championship. We would therefore urge you to register before the start of the season as points cannot be claimed retrospectively. On the Poppy Entry form you will be able to indicate whether you wish to register for the Championship, this is recommended for competitors who are also considering entering either the Classic Marathon or Winter Challenge.
