A little over a month before the start of the Sierra Morena Rally, the first round of the Spanish Championship, we are learning more details about one of the most interesting championships in recent years. The Recalvi Asphalt Rally Spain Cup will be one of the attractions of 2021.
Chema Rodríguez, General Director of the Recalvi Group, the main sponsor of the event together with Michelin, has revealed more details about the Spanish Cup on asphalt that they organize this year. Together with Alfonso Palencia, from TOP MOTOR, he focused on the prizes for race and finals.
The teams will be able to obtain a total of 50,000 euros in final prizes contributed by the Recalvi Group. For this, only the fastest teams in the general classification will be counted, regardless of the brand of tires used. Completely free for participants. That is called as Challenge Recalvi.
Another 50,000 euros of final prizes will be distributed for the Michelin Trophy. Of course, how can it be otherwise, the participating teams must mount the tires of that brand. Teams that have agreements with Michelin, as is the case with Recalvi, will not be able to score points.
The awards are divided as follows, both in the Rcalvi Challenge and in the Michelin: 20,000 euros (first position), 15,000 euros (second), 10,000 euros (third) and 5,000 euros (fourth).
