    Cyprus Rally 2016

    Cyprus Rally will host the tenth, and final, round of the European Rallying Championship. It is to take place from the 7th to 9th of October. At the same time the rally will also host the fifth round of the Middle-East Rally Championship. This means that this is the only time during 2016 that one rally hosts two regional championship rounds of the FIA.



    date: 7th - 9th of October
    surface: gravel and tarmac
    official website: http://www.cyprusrally.com.cy/

    Possible entries:

    Alexey Lukyanuk - Mitsubishi Lancer :
    "I'd like to claim to second position in the championship, we will do Cyprus."

    Marijan Griebel - Skoda Fabia R5 :
    "I’m really, really looking forward to Cyprus: it has been one of my dreams to sit in an R5 car one day.”

    Tomasz Kasperczyk - Ford Fiesta R5 :
    "For me it was a good weekend, I had a lot of fun and I learned as much as possible. Next rally will be better, probably the Cyprus. I'd like to be in the ERC in the next season, but we will see on the beginning of the next year."

    Ralfs Sirmacis - Skoda Fabia R5 - does he still have budget left?

    Cédric Cherain - Ford Fiesta R5 - working on a budget

    Cherain will do the final 2 rounds of the Belgian Championship. It was announced in the same article that there was "a big chance that he would do an other rally this year", so could be Cyprus indeed.

    I don't think Cherian will do Cyprus, as it is really time and money consuming event. You loose car for around month I think. That's one of the main reasons why top ERC participating Czech crews will not go there (from what I know). Kajto not sure yet, Chuchala planned to go, but after rolling in Liepaja they don't have a car (OK, they have spare one but still very limited time to prepare it and most money lost "during" crash). From ERC regulars Botka should be there for sure.

    N. Gryazin said he will drive Cyprus in R5 car...I expect real fun and quite good speed before he will crash (which is nearly sure )
    Visit South Moravia. It is the real paradise

    I don´t think Kajto will do Cyprus, it doesn´t make sense anymore as he´s already champion. It would be a waste of money for him.

    Kajto will not do Cyprus, same like for example Al-Attiyah or Al Qassimi.

    Raul Jeets would like to compete in Cyprus too, but he is not sure whether they will be able to repair the car in time after the rolling and fire in Latvia:
