Today a meeting between the Sports delegate of Oviedo's Council, Mercedes González, the chairman of the Local Police, José Manuel López and the President, the Director and the Secretary of the Rally Princesa de Asturias Ciudad de Oviedo has been held with the aim of analysing the different locations of the rally within the city.
Once more this year, already the 52nd, the backing from Oviedo's Council is vital for the realisation of the oldest event of the Spanish Rally championship, valid also for the FIA European Rally Trophy and the Asturian championship, with the special addition of the Legend Group A rally.
The Sports Palace and the Auditorium will hold the scrutineering and the rally headquarters, the press room and the FIA stewards’ room. The service park will be located at La Manjoya. Furthermore, and as a new addition this year, one of the special stages, which will be named after the city, will be run along the council roads.
Already a significant number of entries have arrived at the Automóvil Club Principado de Asturias, which indicates that this year’s event will have the largest number of competitors in the history of the rally. The entry period is open until Wednesday, 26th of August.
