THE RALLY IN 100 WORDS
An ERC newcomer for 2014, auto24 Rally Estonia excelled in terms of spectator numbers, innovation and organisation to the extent it scooped the ERC Rally of the Year Award. Now established as one of the biggest motoring events in the Baltics, it runs on the smooth gravel roads of southern Estonia where big jumps form part of the exciting high-speed challenge. The city of Tartu hosts the ceremonial start and finish, plus a spectacular street stage on the opening night, while Elva was the setting of another urban test in 2015. Rally HQ and the service park are in Otepää.
