As of today, daily tickets and ticket packages are on sale for WRC Croatia Rally 2023 which will be held from 20 to 23 April in five Croatian counties – Varaždin, Krapina-Zagorje, Zagreb, Karlovac, Primorje-Gorski Kotar and the city of Zagreb. The new edition of this adrenaline international competition brings numerous new benefits for spectators and rally fans.
"This year, we have decided to further enrich the experience of enjoying Special Stages throughout Croatia through numerous contents and interesting facts. We have expanded the Fan Zone areas along the entire length of the track so everyone can follow the rally from even better and safer positions with an additional offer", announced the president of the Organizing Committee of the WRC Croatia Rally Daniel Šaškin.
A limited number of special Early Bird WRC Croatia packages are on sale, within which only 200 customers can purchase a limited WRC Croatia T-shirt made by artist Jan Hrnjak and a reduced ticket price for all four days of the competition. Many will recognize Hrnjak's name at first from his creative collaborations with famous world stars such as Drake, The Weeknd, Kid Cudi and many others. The price of this set of tickets is 55 euros.
"Every ticket purchased is big and needed support because this is an extremely financially demanding event. By purchasing a set of tickets, you get the opportunity to access each of the Fan Zones, which will be set up this year at almost the entire length of the course. Also, a set of tickets allows entrance to the Service Park where the world's best rally drivers will gather," explained Šaškin.
In addition to this special ticket package, daily tickets are available at a price of 10 euros and four-day sets of 30 euros. In addition to the entrance to all Fan Zones with special exams, all tickets are also valid for service parking. Regular tickets are available online through the ulaznice.hr system, and all ticket holders can expect a major WRC sweepstake.
"We are grateful to our spectators and all rally fans for their support. Our wish is that the rally community in Croatia grows even more and we will try to achieve this through the quality of the competition, as well as numerous novelties that we introduce from year to year. As a sign of gratitude for all the buyers of our tickets, we have also organized a prize giving for them. Each ticket buyer participates in the selection for one of the prizes. The awards are, among other things, going to the Juha Kankkunen Driving Academy in Finland this year, then rally rides with our domestic drivers in the second half of this year and numerous other consolation and entertaining prizes", announced Šaškin.
This year again, the Service Park, the Ceremonial Start and the Finish ramp will be in Zagreb, and most of the Special Stages will take place in Karlovac County. The rally area reaches Varaždin and Krapina-Zagorje Counties in the north, through Zagreb County, to Primorje-Gorski Kotar County in the west. WRC Croatia Rally is known for its variable asphalt grip, which is a special challenge for crews and teams because there are no ideal tires for such conditions. For this reason, the Croatian competition is particularly interesting and exciting year after year, and the support of the spectators is a guarantee of the popularity of this sport and a guarantor of the continuation of the competition.
The total length of the Itinerary is 1650 km, of which 301 km are special stages. The previous two editions of the WRC competition in Croatia have been decided at the last special stage (Power Stage), and foreign media have already called the Croatian competition a classic. This year's itinerary has undergone only minor changes, and as a result, another exciting event is expected on home soil.
