Cancellation of Legend Boucles Rallyshow & Rallycross Mettet

Cancellation of Legend Boucles Rallyshow & Rallycross Mettet

09.07.2021: Some decisions are sometimes difficult to take. But in these troubled times, reason must prevail. The Royal Automobile Club de Spa, after strong efforts to offer an interesting programme on Sunday August 1st, has to cancel the organisation of the 1st Lege


Some decisions are sometimes difficult to take. But in these troubled times, reason must prevail. The Royal Automobile Club de Spa, after strong efforts to offer an interesting programme on Sunday August 1st, has to cancel the organisation of the 1st Legend Boucles Rallyshow & Rallycross which was to be held on the RX track of the Circuit Jules Tacheny in Mettet.



"Times are not easy, and after the very bad weather surprise that led to the cancellation of most of the Spa Euro Race, we have to make another bad news official: we will finally not go to Mettet on Sunday August 1st, confirms Pierre Delettre on behalf of R.A.C. Spa.


We knew that the date proposed by the management of the Circuit Jules Tacheny was risky, as it was similar to the 24 Hours of Spa. Of course, the public of the circuit and the rally are not necessarily the same - although -, but from a media point of view, it was complicated to attract attention with such a competition of international stature.


A few weeks ago, the confirmation at this same date of the organisation of the Boucles Chevrotines, a regional event, based 40 kilometres from Mettet, awaited by countless crews who had been eating their heart out for too long, sounded the death knell for our hopes.



We fought until the end, sending hundreds of emails, making dozens of phone calls, but the fact remains: it is impossible to hope to organise the Rallyshow with the hope of a balanced financial situation. And let's call a spade a spade, these days we have to be extra careful...".


In the ranks of R.A.C. Spa, it is also clear that the innovative concept of the Legend Boucles Rallyshow & Rallycross Mettet has not been grasped by everyone. In spite of a multiple and varied communication, not everyone understood how the competition was run", continues Pierre Delettre. Far be it from us to blame anyone. Let's just say that the time was probably not right to propose a new concept in Belgium.



By reducing the meeting to one day, we also compromised the quality of the Rallycross demonstrations. It is difficult to motivate international owners/drivers to drive so many kilometres for a few appearances on the track. Faced with all these difficulties, with my close collaborators, we decided to show reason. We will review our plans and this Legend Boucles Rallyshow & Rallycross will be rescheduled to a more appropriate date, under less problematic circumstances.


The Royal Automobile Club de Spa would like to thank the Circuit Jules Tacheny in Mettet for their understanding and efforts to ensure that the event takes place in the best possible conditions. It goes without saying that the competitors who had paid their entry fees will be reimbursed in the next few days, and kept informed of the evolution of the concept.


R.A.C. Spa will now concentrate on the Racing Festival scheduled on the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps from 15 to 17 October, as well as on their 'flagship', the Legend Boucles @ Bastogne, for which the dates of the 2022 edition will be made official shortly.
