The Ostbelgien Classic awaits the qualifiers for the final of the FIA Historic Regularity Rally Trophy 2022
It has been said time and time again that the Ostbelgien Classic will be the Final of the FIA Historic Regularity Rally Trophy 2022 in only its third edition, scheduled for Friday 02, Saturday 03 and Sunday 04 December! A very official international competition, for which the best crews of other prestigious events have been qualified automatically!
The top 26 finishers of the Ypres Historic Regularity (Belgium), the top 10 finishers of the Ostbelgien Classic (Belgium), the top 7 finishers of the Rally Costa Smeralda Storico (Italy), the top 9 finishers of the Retro Carpathia (Poland), the top 21 finishers of the Historic Acropolis Rally (Greece), the top 8 finishers of the Oresund Rally (Denmark), as well as the best crews of the Tatry Regularity Rally (Slovakia) are all eligible for the FIA crown!
This is obviously a great international line-up of regularity specialists,” smiles Michael Bartholemy, organiser of the Ostbelgien Classic. Not all of them will be present, but we can hope that many crews qualified for the FIA 2022 Grand Final will join us. When designing the course and the sporting regulations of our third edition, we considered the status of the FIA Final, in order to guarantee the greatest sporting equity. Clearly, the Belgian teams will have the advantage of knowing the course, but they are by no means certain to win. This means that not everyone else will be beaten in advance! We are of course in contact with some of these crews, but all those on this list are welcome to discover eastern Belgium, a great playground for a historic regularity rally of international importance. These drivers and co-drivers should not hesitate to contact us for further information, we will gladly honour their status as qualifiers for the 2022 FIA Historic Regularity Rally Trophy Final.
This is a call to you! And see you soon for a new update on the entries…
