Liège-Brescia-Liège Rally Update

Fiat's sponsorship of the Liège-Brescia-Liège 2008 Rally (July 11-20, 2008) was announced in the April Rally update.
As sponsor, Fiat will provide a transporter full of new 500s as replacement transportation for any rally cars that break down in-transit and can't be repaired. (Disabled cars will be transported to the finish in Liège.) Fiat will also be providing a fleet of support vehicles -- 500s for marshals and photographer, a Boblo for a mechanic and a Ducato van for luggage.

It is fitting that Fiat act as the rally sponsor, since the original rally was won by a Fiat 500 Sport, a 500 Abarth was second and all seven 500s that entered, finished.

Deadlines for participation are coming up. Check for details on the Classic Rally Press website.
