APRIL 27th & 28th, 2019 RELIVE THE GENTLEMEN DRIVERS TRADITION IN A LEGENDARY PLACE!
a rally open to all
We are often asked about the criteria for participation in ING Ardenne Roads.
To participate, you do not have to be a customer of one of our partners, but just have an eligible car, namely, that its model existed on December 31, 1969.
You don't have to be a regularity expert either. The rally is intended to be accessible to beginner crews. A mini training session is organized on Friday in the early evening (see below).
The ING Ardenne Roads is exclusively a regularity rally, designed to be accessible to as many people as possible.
The whole road book is made with tulip arrows and the itineraries offer transit controls, time controls with commissioners (exclusively) and, of course, regularity sections measured to the second.
Many navigators are more apprehensive about starting this sport than the drivers. With this in mind, we organise a brief navigation training session on Friday evening to familiarise you with reading road books, keeping an average schedule, respecting transit times and the principle of regularity sections.
Hotels - Catering - ING Private Banking dinner
Traditionally we stay for the whole weekend at the Radisson Blu Palace Hotel and Silva Hotel – Spa Balmoral. Both offer every comfort of a four-star hotel.
You can arrive as early as Saturday morning, or even stay overnight Friday (booking exclusively through our registration fee).
Lunches are organised by our caterer, in little-known places in this region rich in cultural heritage.
And thanks to our sponsor ING Private Banking, you will be invited to our official dinner on Saturday evening in the Casino Spa in front of the Radisson Blu Palace.
Official mechanical assistance
We have organised official specialist mechanical assistance. This will be provided along the route and will resolve any problems you may have, so a technical hitch will not prevent you from completing the rally..
The rally cars are parked inside the Parc de Sept Heures which is guarded at night. The route is designed to ensure you are never in any danger. The last check is carried out the day before the start. Finally, to maximise security, a lead car will drive ahead of the first competitor and a second team will bring up the rear.
The registration fee is
1.785 € VAT incl.
The amount will cover the accommodation for the teams in a double room, a buffet breakfast, lunch, the Saturday evening dinner offered by ING Private Banking, insurance, sporting rights and official assistance.
