Rallies of 2015 overview

Kenotek by CID LINES Ypres Rally (Belgium, asphalt) 25-27 June

One of the most popular fixtures in international rallying, the Kenotek by CID LINES Ypres Rally turned 50 in 2014 when local legend Freddy Loix scored a record-extending ninth win. Using farmland roads around the historic market town in western Belgium, the narrow sealed-surface stages are lined by drainage ditches and telegraph poles and characterised by tight junctions that catch out the unwary. Following Free Practice, Qualifying Stage and Shakedown, the action is traditionally contained in a 30-hour window, making the rally a real test for car and crew. The event is a round of the Belgian championship and new-for-2015 FIA R-GT Cup.
