The jubilee Baja Poland 2018 approved in the FIA World Cup.

(Warsaw, September 22, 2017) The FIA World Motor Sport Council meeting, which was held in Paris has revealed the calendar of the 2018 FIA World Cup for Cross Country Rallies. The competition in this discipline's most important and prestigious series is going, just as this year, to be conducted on the routes of eleven rounds. The tenth edition of Baja Poland is going to make the ninth outing of the series. 

Marcin Fiejdasz, Clerk of the Course said: “Baja Poland enjoys acclaim from the FIA, competitors, media and spectators, naturally. We introduce fresh ideas and solutions every year and that provide higher level of the competition and organisation. We are going to celebrate a nice jubilee next year. The rally is going to be carried out for the tenth time and seventh in the FIA World Cup. We do not plan to introduce radical changes in the next edition. The rally base is going to be located in Szczecin. The local government gives us priceless help just as the boroughs of Dobra and Drawsko Pomorskie. Rally offices, service park, ceremonial start and finish will take place on Łasztownia island. This idea gave us very good results this year. However, we are planning to make drivers' lives a bit more difficult by making longer the stages at the Drawsko Pomorskie's military training ground. We have to admit that the characteristics of these tests will be also a bit more demanding. The Polish round of the FIA World Cup round is of course a good opportunity to improve development of this discipline in our country. It works, as we can see in the rallies' results. Having our drivers on the front of the World Cup's grid cannot be a coincidence. I have no doubts that the stages of 10th Baja Poland 2018 will make the place of the astonishing rally show. Both for the drivers from Poland and the world's cross-country elite.”
