Route

  • 2016 rally details not yet available

Challenge

  • Very fast roads will see speeds approach those of Rally Finland. 
  • Tall grass lines many sections, limiting visibility on the approach to corners. 
  • Grass also hides rocks so cutting corners is a risky pastime.

Car spec

  • Gravel suspension.
  • Soft compound tyres are the primary option, but hard rubber will also be available.

History

  • First established in 1921, Rally Poland is one of the world’s oldest rallies.
  • It was included in the inaugural WRC season in 1973 when there were only three classified finishers. Four other crews completed the route but were excluded for being out of time.
  • It left the calendar and became an asphalt event in the European Championship.
  • It returned to WRC in 2009 when Mikko Hirvonen won, after which it was again removed. 
  • It returned to the championship for a second time in 2014.
