Liège-Brescia-Liège July 11-21, 2019 Update

Published: 19 Dec 2018   updated: 14 Mar 2019



As previously reported last month Neil and Sue have signed up for and will be participating in this "TR" only classic event next year in 6VC. We reported last month that November 30th was the final day to sign up for what is shaping up to be an amazing rally next July, and having seen the list of entrants so far, some fabulous cars and people have added this event to their competition calendar. However, the organisers have just informed us that there is still time for a few late entries. 

Based on the Royal Motor Union of Liege's 1958 international rally which was organised exclusively for cars with engines under 500cc, having been recreated as a historic rally in 2008 now annually runs with differing marque's. July 2019 will see Classic Rally Press run a TR only event, driving an actual 1958 rally route in its entirety, with just a few tweaks made to avoid parts that have become too busy. Starting in Liege Belgium this brilliant route combines traveling through some of Europe's most stunning countryside with some circuit tests along the route, passing through Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland and Slovenia, finishing back at the starting point in Belgium, this is one of those once in a lifetime events to attend.

Also shared to us by the organisers is a provisional timetable for the rally, which we are sharing with you below so you get a flavour of what's install if you decide to sign up for the event.
