13 gravel stages and spectacular Karowa finale

(07.05.2021) The very first edition of Rally Poland began in Warsaw. Exactly after 100 years the most important event in Polish motorsport will finish in capital of Poland. After covering 12 special stages in Masurian Lakes District and one around city of Przasnysz, ORLEN 77th Rally Poland competitors will tackle famous stage at Karowa street in the heart of Warsaw. Final stage of 2021 ERC-opener has been proudly named Rally Poland 100th Anniversary to celebrate a hundred years of event’s history.

As many as 76 editions of Rally Poland were held since 1921. During this time the route of the event went through many regions of Poland. Rally crews visited not only Warsaw, but Cracow, Zakopane, Lodz, Wroclaw, Bydgoszcz, Bytom, Gdansk, Gdynia, Jelenia Gora, Katowice, Lublin, Olsztyn, Poznan, Przemysl, Rzeszow, Szczecin, Torun and Zielona Gora as well. Moreover, in interwar period cars of Rally Poland competitors were driven to Prague, Vilnius and Lviv. After many years of tarmac competition, in 2005 Rally Poland moved to Mikolajki. This picturesque city hosts rally HQ since then.

The route of Rally Poland 77th edition has 870 kilometres in total, with 14 special stages covering as many as 202 kilometres. Qualifying stage Talty will kick-off the high-speed gravel competition on Friday (18th of June) afternoon. After settling the running order for top 15 crews, the opening stage will be held at Mikolajki Arena track. 7 stages with total length of 133,1 kms are scheduled for Saturday (19th of June). Sunday morning begins with loop of 4 stages around Mikolajki, followed by road section to Warsaw, with a brand new special stage nearby Przasnysz. Final test is about to begin on 6 PM at Browarna, Furmanska and Karowa streets in Warsaw.

13 out of 14 ORLEN 77th Rally Poland speed tests are flowing and spectacular gravel stages. Three of them use a new route (SS 2/5 Świętajno, SS 4/7 Wieliczki, SS 13 Przasnysz), even though its names were used in previous editions of ORLEN Rally Poland. Mikolajki Arena (SS 1/8), Mikolajki Max (SS 9/11) are the same as in 2019 when last edition of Polish ERC counter was held. The route both of SS Gmina Mragowo (10/12) and SS Olecko (number 3/6) is pretty similar to the version from 2019 season. The latter one includes the mind-blowing Rosochackie jump, famous among rallying fans.

The final stage of the event named Rally Poland 100th Anniversary, run to underline a century-long history of the event, is the only test which uses only paved roads – tarmac and cobblestone-covered. The finish of SS14 is located in the centre of Warsaw, nearby well-known Bristol Hotel and Presidential Palace.
