Provisional 2016 Tenerife Rally Calendar

From the Palma Canaria Norte Rally in the El Palmar Valley
Rallies in Tenerife may not be strictly traditional, but they've certainly become an important tradition and Tenerife definately does them differently than anywhere else. One of these days, no doubt, they'll spoil it by invoking the safety elf, but for now, they offer a wonderful opportunity to watch some thrilling, live motor-sport, free of charge, right by the side of the road, completely unhindered by barriers or anything silly like that.

As previously reported, the dates for the 26th Adeje Rally, on the 18th, 19th & 20th March, are confirmed, but here is the rest of the (currently draft) rally programme for 2016:

Date Rallies Hill Climbs
19th March Adeje
5th March 2nd April [1] El Tanque
9th April CANCELLED
Las Mercedes
30th April CANCELLED
Valle Tabares
14th May Orvecame Norte
11th June Güímar
25th June Granadilla
30th July Guía de Isora
10th September Sprint Atogo
17th September [2] La Guancha
1st October Tamaimo
8th October Arona
15th October Isla Tenerife
26th November Arico

[1] The El Tanque Hillclimb, which was to have started the season on March 5th, has already been rescheduled for April 2nd, according to this report, which also suggests that [2] the La Guancha Hillclimb could be postponed to November and that there are likely to be route changes to the Orvecame Norte Rally taking place in May.
