Tour of Flanders is turning 50

The 50th running of the Tour of Flanders Rally will be celebrated by the Autoclub Midden Vlaanderen on September 11-13, starting with a 10-mile special stage on the Friday evening.

Breaking with recent tradition, the Belgian rally will visit host town Roeselare for an overnight halt on Friday. The rally will restart from outside the city hall on Saturday for two full days of special stages on closed public roads.

The historic rally is once again the penultimate round of the MSA British Historic Rally Championship, as well as being a round of the Belgian historic championship.
