Ladies and Gents,
We would like to create this thread so that we inform peopleabout the Serres Rally 2014 and any updates we might have for the race.
The race is officially in the FIM calendar as an International Cross Country Rally (IMN:890/09) and the racing week for 2014 is from the 30th of August to the 6th of September.
Once more, the Rally will be part of the Mediterranean Trophy. Five events of different styles making it a very challenging and spectacular event to follow. We will keep everybody updated!
Last year the rally was a pure success, with the elite riders wanting a good base to train for the upcoming rallies and especially the Dakar. This year, along with some very nice surprises, the elite riders will be with us, making Serres Rally Raid the most welcoming race in Greece. The Hotel, situated near the centre of the city of Serres, offers Massage and Spa and there are tours at lake Kekrini, should you decide to come to Greece with your family. Always a good excuse for holidays, so while you are racing they can either relax or go for a tour! Having setup a solid background through the last years, we are excited to bring some new features in the Rally arena. More on that soon!
