Rally Stuff IRC Round 5 -Ypres Rally talk/results spoiler*

Round 5 - Ypres Rally June 18-20 - Asphalt

Official Website: Ypres Rally

The Intercontinental Rally Challenge returns to mainland Europe for round five of this year's series, the Belgium Ypres Rally, from June 18-20.

The asphalt surface and the tricky conditions of Belgium make for a technically challenging event which is likely to be played out in unpredictable weather, when scorching sunshine can turn to heavy rain in the blink of an eye.

The stages on the Belgium Ypres Rally tend to be straight and narrow farm tracks, with several obstacles to catch out the unwary. The long straights are often followed by sharp 90-degree corners, making it extremely difficult to judge the correct braking points.

There is also much loose gravel on the corners, meaning that the cars struggle to find traction as the tyres shift from an asphalt to gravelly surface.

These are far from the only hazards crews will have to cope with: the rapid stages are frequently lined with deep drainage ditches – often filled with water – and there are trees, walls and telegraph poles close to the side of the road.
