Lygnasprinten Rally Week

The situation in the Rally World is now such, that instead of choosing what to write about, you are just looking for something that at least happened over the weekend.

If not for the main photo of the article, then at least in the archive.

Rallye de Balagne ’20

Rallye de Balagne Rally Week

This regular event in France, the Rallye de Balagne, is important that it has at least taken place.
