81st INTERNATIONAL F.I.C.C. RALLY in PORI/FINLAND from 24 JULY to 1 AUGUST 2014

The second international F.I.C.C. Rally to be held in 2014, will take place on the west coast of Finland in the Jazz Festival town of Pori. SF Caravan is organising the event and it will be celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2014.
Finland is in the Euro zone so exchange considerations are irrelevant for a good many participants. Roads in Finland are consistently good and there are excellent campsites everywhere.
Ferry services operate from Tallin, Gdansk, Travemünde, Stockholm etc.
The rally site is 22 hectares, 10 – 12 of which will be used for 1,000 pitches (each 100 sq.m.). It is right in the centre of the town, is very green and beautiful and can take caravans up to 60 tonnes.
The campsite has all the necessary amenities – drinking water, electricity, and new containers with lots of toilets, showers etc. will be installed and, as is common practice in Finland, rubbish is sorted and recycled.
There are hotels in the middle of the town, about 1 ½ kms from the rally site, and a restaurant 500m away.
A varied daily programme awaits participants and children and teenagers won’t be forgotten either. A children’s playground adjoins the rally site and the sandy beach has been awarded the Blue Flag eco-label.
The arena can take 40,000 people so there should be no problem even if it rains.
The organisers will take rally registrations from the beginning of December.
