Monbat Rally Sliven 2021 will offer 11 special stages

The 40th anniversary Monbat Rally Sliven will offer 11 special stages and nearly 170 competitive kilometers to crews and spectators. The rally, which is the second round of the Bulgarian Rally Championship and the third round of the Balkan Rally Trophy, will take place on June 11th and 12th, betting on a new scheme.

The organizers of ASK "Scorpion" have the ambition to create a real racing weekеnd by combining the most popular Bulgarian rally in recent years with a round of the Bulgarian Drift Championship.

For this reason, in 2021 Monbat Rally Sliven will be held on a Friday-Saturday schedule while the drift race will be carried out on Saturday and Sunday respectively. The change in the rally programme will not harm the participating crews in any way, on the contrary - they will face one of the most challenging editions of the rally in recent years. As written above, Monbat Rally Sliven will offer 170 competitive kilometers distributed in 11 special stages.

Drivers' favorites "Kotel" and "Stara Reka" stages return to the itinerary, as "Stara Reka" will be the longest stage in the rally - 32.50 kilometers. The shortest one will be the brand new super special stage called "Monbat". This attractive piece of road and the service park will have a new location this year - Burshen Airport near Sliven.

The Ceremonial Start of the event will be held on Thursday night at Hadzhi Dimitar Square in the center of Sliven. Friday afternoon the crews will go through four special stages, the last of which will be completely in the night. Saturday will be the decider of the anniversary edition of the rally - seven special stages with a total length of nearly 115 competitive kilometers.

More details about the upcoming 40th Monbat Rally Sliven can be found in the "Competitors" section of its webpage (www.rallysliven.com), where the Supplementary Regulations and the Entry Form are already available.
