New in the Netherlands rally scene is the Eurol R5 Rally Challenge, initiated by, and aimed at, the very top of the Dutch rallying world. We at 2convince take care of the total coordination, which includes the development of the website, establishing and maintaining the various social media, and of course all public relations. On top of that, we are actively involved in the recruitment of sponsors and participants. After a successful start in 2017, the Eurol R5 Rally Challenge will radically change the face of Dutch rallying in 2018 and onwards.
The R5 category is open for WRC derived vehicles with a 1.6 liter turbo engine, delivering about 260 hp and a maximum torque of 400 Nm. The four-wheel drive system is coupled to a sequential gearbox and the cars weigh in at around 1200 kg. Brands such as Hyundai, Skoda, Citroën, Ford and Peugeot have all homologated models for this new FIA initiated class.
