The 2019 TER – Tour European Rally kicks off in Rally Valli Cuneesi
Italy hosts the opening round for the first time.
The TER promoters and organisers are delighted to welcome the latest event to join the new concept of rally series.
The 25th Rally Valli Cuneesi will open the 2019 season. This will be the first time that the TER – Tour European Rally starts from Italy, after the previous seasons all kicked off in Romania.
Based in Dronero (Cuneo), in north-west Italy, the event has been in the past a round of several series, including the Swiss Championship. The 25th anniversary edition, scheduled on April 26-27, will feature an exciting blend of fast and twisty mountain roads over two days of rally action.
Set in a beautiful all-year round tourist destination, close to ski areas and beautiful countryside, not far from the Italian and French Riviera, the area is also famous for its excellent food and wines.
