Service area
Please respect the private properties of our hosts.  Following the RACB regulations all teams must place a canvas under the car in the service area.  If an oil accident arrives, please inform immediately the organization staff so that they can take the accurate actions.


Starting procedure
No official timing will be taken during the Shakedown.  We ask all the teams to not take unnecessary risks and to adapt their driving style to limit the risk of accidents to a maximum.  Especially in the village of Nidrum we want to avoid any accident before the start of the rally.




Way back to the service areas
As there are other competitors and spectators circulating in the whole service area you need to respect a 30 km/h speed limit.

We wish you a good preparation of the East Belgian Rally 2018 and enjoy.
