Loek de Rooij passed away after a short illness at the age of 75. Loek was one of our most loyal competitors in the Tulpenrallye and he has participated 27 times. In the Gulf Tulpenrallye of 1978 he entered for the first time, together with navigator E. Brink in an Opel Ascona.
Willem van Leeuwen is the new assistant race director and added to the Organization Committee of the Tulpenrallye. Willem van Leeuwen was in 2013 the winner of the 60th Tulpenrallye in the Expert Class and brings a lot of rally- and organization experience with him.
The preparations of the 67th Tulpenrallye have started again. Early May 2021 the permit requests will be sent out again. The route of the Tulpenrallye has hardly changed. The agreements with the HQ-hotels and lunch locations have been confirmed.
“Tulpenrallye at the table #2” was published on Youtube on 6th of March 2021 In “Tulpenrallye at table #2” we are the guest of George Banken (Detron). Detron is a partner of the Tulpenrallye. Besides George Banken the sponsors Daniël Frankenhuis (YveY) and Jan Willem van Es (Hiscox) are present.
Some equipes have cancelled their registration. This is related to the editions of May 2020, October 2020 or May 2021 and are now not on the participants list. If these crews still wish to participate in the upcoming edition of the Tulpenrallye, we ask them to contact the Rallyoffice to discuss the possibilities.
