A pomising Rally Princess of Asturias-City of Oviedo
A luxury inscription for a Rally Princess of Asturias-City of Oviedo that has no limits. The 55th edition of the race is about to take the start, with some recognizable stretches but with paths adjusted based on the experience, a shakedown of Ribera de Arriba recovered, an exit settled in the heart of Oviedo, a renewed APP that accumulates thousands of downloads and a new Fan Zone, which will allow you to enjoy the international stretch of Saturday as a family. All these elements increase the sporting projection of the rally and its economic and tourist repercussion.
The inscription and the streches
The list of registrants has been closed with a total of 168 teams, among which stand out, by their growing number, the R5. It is one of the best inscriptions in history. In this 55th edition will be put to test the expertise of the riders who will race the European Rally Trophy, the Spanish Rally Asphalt Championship (CERA) or the Autonomic Contest. The duel that Iván Ares maintains, in his Hyundai i20 R5; with Miguel Fuster, in his Ford Fiesta R5; and the Spaniard José Antonio Suárez Rocket, with another Hyundai i20 R5, in the Spanish Championship, has become an extra incentive. The 2018 edition has a total of 12 special stages - in addition to the shakedown - which make more than 170 kilometers. After the success of 2017, the organization has once again included the Oviedo-Uvieu International Strech, which will be broadcast live by TPA. That has also been the location chosen to set up the Fan Zone, which the Spanish Royal Federation wants to extend to all CERA competitions. This Fan Zone will be open to the public from 12.00pm until 9.00pm. It will have a stage, restoration zone, car simulators and brand stands. The kick-off will be given by the official ceremony organized in Uría street, tomorrow, Thursday, at 19:30pm. That will be a good opportunity for fans to meet the expectations with which some of the registered drivers will race, as the official speaker will conduct a round of interviews with Iván Ares, Miguel Fuster, José Antonio Suárez Rocket, Dani Solá and Marco Bulacia.
Those who do not have the opportunity to enjoy the rally live can do so through the official website (www.rallyprincesa.com) or the Rally Princess of Asturias APP, developed by EuroWeb Media SL, and available for both Apple and Android . The application accumulates more than 13,700 downloads. Users can receive notifications in real time both on the web and in the APP, with the streach announcements. You will also have access to the official bulletin board, to the radio broadcast that Radio Marca will carry out and to all the contents, both in Spanish and in English. In the 2017 edition, it received more than 200,000 visits daily during the tests.
Even the weather is on our side. The forecast indicates that the sky will be cloudy on Thursday with a 60% chance of weak precipitation, but it seems that it evolves favorably on Friday and Saturday and the sun will shine throughout the day.
