The Belgian rally fans received some very big news recently! The Ypres Rally yet again took up a spot in the FIA World Rally Championship. And what’s even better, Ardeca Lubricants will be the head sponsor of the Ypres Rally for the next 3 years!
As a kick-start to the next three years as head sponsor of the Ypres Rally, we are glad to announce that Ardeca Ypres Rally will be hosting one of the WRC races. History was made last year, as the FIA World Rally Championship was held in Belgium, by the name of Ypres Rally.
Due to the pandemic, Club Superstage had the unique opportunity to promote to the FIA World Rally Championship with the Ypres Rally. It was a great rally party, won by our compatriots Thierry Neuville and Martijn Wydaeghe. It’s clear that the organization made a strong impression on its debut at the highest level, because Ardeca Ypres Rally has found its place on the 2022 FIA World Rally Championship calendar! Talk about a surprise!
On the provisional calendar of the FIA World Rally Championship, the 9th round was designated for the weekend of August 19-21, but the name of the race had not yet been filled in. There were several candidates for the place, but the WRC asked if Ardeca wanted to fill up that spot. They didn't have to ask twice. It's an honor for us to host one of the WRC races in 2022!
