Rally Liepaja 2015

6th February 2015 - 8th February 2015


  • Rally LiepÄ)a took place for the first time in 2013 when it ran up the Baltic coast from LiepÄ)a to Ventspils in Latvia’s far west. With Ventspils no longer on the itinerary, a significantly revamped route for 2014 featured high-speed forest stages in the LiepÄ)a and KuldÄ«ga districts. Leg one was based around KuldÄ«ga, 88 kilometres north of LiepÄ)a, with leg two centred on Aizpute, 50 kilometres north of LiepÄ)a. However, plans are underway to further condense the event’s spread in 2015 and more details will be announced shortly. Despite freezing temperatures, fans flock to the stages in great number.
