Rally Turkey was launched in spectacular fashion on Wednesday evening at a glamorous opening party in host town Marmaris.
Hundreds of people attended the invitation-only evening, which included an international fashion show in which top-name models worked a red carpet catwalk stretching out into the sea.
The stylish function at the Grand Yazici Club Turban, rally headquarters for Turkey’s return to the WRC after an eight-year absence, included DJ entertainment for partygoers until the early hours.
A display of miniature rally cars and figures, depicting memorable moments from the WRC’s history, greeted guests as they arrived.
