The organisation of the Ypres Historic Rally is running flat-out again! We are entirely back on track after a difficult winter and are looking forward to a fantastic Ypres Historic Rally on 18-20 June 2009. When Serge Messine, one of the driving forces behind the Ypres Historic Rally Organisation, passed away the group needed restructuring. Philip Steyaert became the new president and gathered a team of collaborators around him. The new organisers of the Belgium Ypres Rally, vzw SuperStage, will count on Philip Steyaert and his team to make the Historic rally again a great success in 2009. Racing director Johan Taffin will also be back being the man who will keep everyone on the straight and narrow. The rally centre for the Ypres Historic Rally will remain in its normal location in Boezinge where we will also have the shake-down on Wednesday 17 June. The Ypres Historic Rally will again have a fantastic line-up this year with many teams from different countries having expressed interest to participate in the events in the Ypres region. For many drivers, this event is a real 'must' on their calendar. For the spectators, this is their chance to have a taste of the sideways action of the old days. One thing is sure: it will be one big party again!
