Serres Rally News
The best Edition of the Serres Rally is on the way!
It’s our pleasure and an honor to present to you the new version of Serres Rally for 2017!
In August, the Town of Serres will welcome once again the Serres Rally for the 2017 season. Serres Rally 2017, - the biggest Rally ever held in Greece- will be organized by Off Road Team.
It is a «bona fide» Rally Raid event which will be held in Northern Greece and is part of the FIM and FIM Europe calendar, making it an official event of the Cross Country Rally Raid World.
Furthermore, the organizational integrity of the event will be of the highest standards, since the Off Road Team (www.offroadteam.gr) and the Auto Moto Club of Serres (www.lams.gr) have already shown their quality with successful event organizations, like the World Championship Enduro WEC - EWC from 2004 to 2016, the ISDE 2008 and also the National Championship Rally Raid with 8 races every year all over the Greece, from 2005 to 2016.
Off Road Team’s experience for mapping out off road routes along with faultless design of Road Books and in conjunction with the organizational force of LAMS, guaranties a most exciting and unforgettable race experience.
