WRC A FULL 2016
A 77 – STRONG ENTRY FOR THE 2016 TOUR DE CORSE.
A 77-strong entry for the 2016 Tour de Corse.
Tour de Corse event director David Serieys met with the 2016 rally’s organising team in Bastia, Haute Corse, today (Friday, September 9). Amongst other details, the meeting onboard the Piana finalised this year’s entry list which features 77 crews, including 14 Corsican entries.
With only a few days to go to the Tour de Corse 2016, at the closing date for entries the result has been really positive.
“With 77 entrants, we have today recorded a satisfactory number of entries this season for the Tour de Corse 2016. It’s obvious proof of the interest whipped up by this mythical WRC ‘s event, support by itinerary that’s undergone a 70 per cent revamp compared to 2015: in other words 161 km of new special stages” said David Serieys, Tour de Corse Director.
Out of a total of 77 entries, 12 will start at the wheel of WRC cars, 11 in WRC2s, 14 in WRC3s and 1 in RGTs. It’s no surprise that France supplies the highest number of crews (49), with a significant proportion of Corsican entrants (14).
