Rally Estonia 2015

17th July 2015 - 19th July 2015


 






  • An ERC newcomer for 2014, auto24 Rally Estonia was big on fast, jump-coated gravel stages. It was also big on spectator numbers, innovation and excellent organisation to the extent it scooped the coveted ERC Rally of the Year Award. Although the event’s headquarters and service park were located in the southern town of Otepää, Tartu – the second largest city in Estonia – played a significant role in the fifth running of the event in 2014 by hosting the ceremonial start and finish, plus a street stage. The event’s inclusion in ERC is provisional subject to the signing of the promoter agreement.
