font size    

Cyprus will hold a historic car rally this weekend on the scenic Mediterranean island with the participation of 72 old cars.

The 19th International Historic Car Rally, or the 2nd Historic Cyprus Rally, is organised by the Cyprus Automobile Association (CAA). It is included in the calendar of the International Federation of Ancient Vehicles (FIVA) and the International Automobile Federation (FIA).

A total of 72 old cars manufactured before 1982, with the oldest Ford model A made in 1931, will roll for the three-day regularity rally from May 25, covering 500 kilometers with 18 time control points divided into three legs.

Petros Demetriades, a spokesman of the CAA, told Xinhua on Thursday that foreign participants from Greece, Italy, Lebanon, Sweden, Britain and America will join local drivers in the rally.

The rally will start in capital Nicosia on Friday afternoon. The participants will drive their historic cars to coastal towns of Larnaca, Paphos and Limassol. They will be back to Nicosia on Sunday.
