33rd Orvecame Lanzarote Rally

The 33rd Orvecame Lanzarote Island Rally takes place tomorrow, Saturday 10th December in Tabayesco, close to Arrieta. A total of forty-four teams have signed up to participate, including local born rally driver Yeray Lemes.

Amongst the cars being driven in the rally are a Porsche 911, a Skoda Fabia WRC, a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo, a Subaru Impreza, an Opel Corsa and a Honda Civic Type R. Obviously all the cars have been adapted to give maximum performance results in the speed trials over the challenging course.

The reigning champion of Lanzarote rally driving, David Tenorio, will be participating in his Opel Corsa, whilst Yeray Lemes will be driving a Skodia Fabia WRC.

The rally’s route runs from the chapel at Las Nieves, on top of the Peñas del Chache down to Tabayesco and then consists of the same route in reverse. The first trials start at 09.20, with the final trial scheduled for 14.00. As a result of the event, several roads will be closed, including the LZ-207 which runs up from the main Arrieta road to Tabayesco and through to the crossroads at Haria.

The LZ-10 which is the main Tahiche to Arrieta road will also be closed from Km 16,5 to the crossroads at Haria and the road that runs between the chapel at Las Nieves down to the Mirador at Los Helechos, which overlooks the valley of Temisa and Tabayesco, will also be closed.
