The Republic of San Marino will meanwhile prepare a warm welcome to the “People” of Rallylegend, who will pacifically “invade” the rally republic next 6th-9th October.
Under the spotlight, as always, the most beloved cars that made the history of rallies, that go back to the special stages under the control of still brilliant unforgettable champions. All around there will be the many initiatives that made Rallylegend “legendary”, a unique, original and iconic brand, beyond being the fist on all stages.
THE RACE WILL SEE “HISTORIC”, “MYTH” AND “WRC-KIT” FOR A BIG SHOW. NEWS IN THE LEGEND STARS
The race will see this year, too, the three queen categories at Rallylegend: “Historic”, “Myth” and Wrc-Kit. Some news will come for the “Legend Stars” category… Last year the “Historic” saw the victory of the French champion Eric Comas on the fascinating Lancia Stratos, whereas Tony Cairoli, great motocross world champion, won the “Myth” category at his debut with the Lancia Delta Integrale. Among the Wrc- Kit Car the victory went to the champion from San Marino Denis Colombini, on his Peugeot 306 Maxi.

Categories included, prizes and conditions are under definition.
ANTIGUA LEGEND CUP CONFIRMED. THREE CREWS FROM ANTIGUA WILL BE PRESENT AT RALLYLEGEND
