The entry list of the Rallye International du Valais features 77 crews who will pit against each other on the roads of Valais between Sion and Martigny from 21 to 22 October. The first to start with his Ford Fiesta R5 will be Sébastien Carron, recently crowned Swiss Rally Champion. Nine other R5 class cars representing four different manufacturers will be at the start.
Due to the ever-growing challenges to organize a large scale event such as the Rally International du Valais (RIV), its organizer has chosen a new direction with the will to preserve the universally recognized character that has made it successful.
By leaving the Championships that impose constraints increasingly difficult to cope with and by joining the Tour European Rally (TER), the organizing team wishes to make the RIV more affordable for all categories of crews who, year after year, make a point of honour to compete there.
The supplementary regulations of the 57th Rallye International du Valais, a round of the 2016 European Rally Trophy and last encounter of the Tour European Rally, is available from Friday 19 August. The documents necessary for entry are posted on the official event’s website: http://riv.ch/en/. Those who are interested can ask for an ID and password to access the private area in the competitors’ section.
