37th Croatia Rally
Let the racing begin!

This year, the 37th Croatia Rally has moved to Kvarner from the surroundings of Zagreb. Rally drivers from Croatia and abroad, their teams and spectators will have a terrific chance to enjoy these spectacular races, set in magnificent landscapes, and in the special atmosphere where even the fiercest competitors end up as friends.

The 37th Croatia Rally 2010 will take place from the 14th to the 16th of May under the patronage of the President of the Republic of Croatia Dr. Ivo Josipović. The event will be organised by the Croatian Automobile and Carting Federation and the Automobile Federation of the Primorje-Gorski kotar County. In previous years, this rally used to take place in the surroundings of Zagreb, but now it moved to Kvarner and will take place in Rijeka, the hinterland of Novi Vinodolski, some parts of Gorski kotar, the hinterland of Opatija, and on the Kvarner and Istrian sides of Mount Učka. The race will include eight different tracks with the overall length of more than 743 kilometres.
At the moment, the organisers are receiving registrations of participants from Croatia and throughout Europe – a total of ca. hundred teams is expected to take part in this race. The rally starts on the 14th of May on Rijeka's main promenade, the Korzo.
The arrival of some of the best Croatian and European rally teams guarantees an interesting race, which will be accompanied by a varied sports and entertainment programme. For those who can't make it to the race, it will be broadcast on the internet at www.croatiarally.eu
