Columna Medica Safari Rally is a new-old rally in Polish Cross-Country Rally Championship calendar. New, because it has a new name and takes place in a new location. Old, as it replaces former Warsaw Safari. Old or new, it will definitely be a rally different from the others. Columna Medica Safari Rally is the 2nd round of Polish Cross-Country Rally Championship and Polish Cross-Country Rally Cup, as well as Polish Bajas Cup, and also the 3rd and 4th round of Czech Republic Cross-Country Rally Championship. It will take place on 25-26 May in Drawsko Pomorskie.

Columna Medica Safari Rally replaces Warsaw Safari, which used to be held in June in Warsaw. So, in fact, it is a new rally in Polish Cross-Country Rally Championship calendar, as it takes place in May in Drawsko Pomorskie. But not only the date and the place are new – also the rally’s formula is a novelty. Columna Medica Safari Rally is a rally for competitors, what’s obvious, but also for their families, friends and fans. It aims at integration of “cross-country rally family”, alongside with hard racing. The racing may even be harder than in other rallies, as organisers prepared some offroad surprises on the route. 

Drawsko Pomorskie Military Training Area is definitely the best place in Poland for organising cross-country rallies. It’s vast, so there are many possible combinations of routes, and the varied terrain is ideal for checking competitors’ and their cars’ abilities. Wide sandy spaces and narrow forest tracks are the main characteristics of this area. Rally HQ will be located in Drawsko Pomorskie in the same place as in Columna Medica Baja Drawsko, but the location of service park is completely new. Not only mechanics will have something to do there – organisers prepared many attractions for fans, even the youngest ones.

Columna Medica Safari Rally will start on 25 May with administrative checks and scrutineering. In the afternoon the start ceremony will take place in the centre of Drawsko Pomorskie, and right after that the competitors present themselves to the audience tackling the 12 km prologue. It will be a good warm-up before… an evening party. ;) For Saturday (26 May), organisers prepared a 102 km special stage, run twice. Prize-giving ceremony will take place in the evening in the service park. 

Entries for Columna Medica Safari Rally are already open and will close on 11th May. 

The rally is organized by M-FOR SPORT in cooperation with Baja Poland Foundation.
