Motorsport season will start in Kumrovec this year as well, in the first weekend in March. The date is earlier than in previous years, and after a long time a Croatian championship rally will be held in winter. Although in recent years the winter months are above average warm, there is a possibility that Kumrovec will be driven in snow conditions.
Organizers partner this year will be Croatian oil company INA. "For many years INA is one of the biggest sponsors of sport in Croatia, and I'm especially pleased that the rally in Kumrovec was recognized as a well-organized event, which attracts many spectators every year. Oil industry and motorsport make quite logical "marriage" in each country, including Croatia, so I'm hoping that this is just the beginning of long-term cooperation of our club with one of the leading Croatian companies "- said the president of the club organizer AK Delta Sport Dino DeljkiÄ after signing the contract on cooperation.
