After all the setbacks of 2020, the Belgian ASBL Spa Historic Racing Team has announced the creation of the Francorchamps Rallye Festival. An event similar to the Eifel Rallye Festival, Alsace Rallye Festival and Rallyspirit in Portugal, it will consist of a vast demonstration of historic rally cars in their original livery, often driven by rally stars of the period. With rally festivals proliferating around Europe, this one will be based at the Spa-Francorchamps Circuit, with a show stage in the town of Stavelot on the programme, on 23-26 September. Alpine will be the celebrated marque for this first edition of what is planned to become an annual event.
