Columna Medica Baja Drawsko is the opening round of the cross-country rally season in Poland. It also counts for the Central European Zone Championship (FIA-CEZ) and Czech Republic Championship. Usually it is a “grand opening”, considering the long route of the rally (about 300km) and big number of competitors from Poland and abroad, who come here to race.
The HQ of the rally is located in Drawsko Pomorskie – a nice town situated in North-West Poland, Farther Pomerania region. This area is characterised by varied terrain, numerous lakes and beautiful forests. The rally takes place on nearby Drawsko Pomorskie Military Training Centre, which is the biggest military area in Poland. Thanks to its great equipment, this military area often hosts soldiers from all NATO countries, who come here for training. Beside Columna Medica Baja Drawsko also Baja Poland takes place here, which is a round of FIA World Cup for Cross-Country Rallies. This area offers excellent conditions for cross-country rallies for all types of vehicles – from bikes to trucks.
The rally itself offers competitors perfectly prepared route with long timed sections and short road sections. Long and straight sandy or gravel parts give an opportunity to go “flat-out”. Hard, but winding forest tracks require precision in driving. Navigators also have to be vigilant, as numerous twists and turns may end up in missing a junction. It all takes place in a beautiful scenery of fragrant spring forests and sandy open spaces, what makes the rally very attractive also for the fans.
