“In its essence, Rally Liepāja is a very unique rally – around the globe there are not that many rallies that has been organised in winter, autumn, and in spring as well. All this has been possible because of a bunch of crazy people to whom I would like to express my gratitude. Team of RA Events, who, possibly, are as crazy as I am. Thanks to Rally Latvia and Jānis Krastiņš, who supports these crazy ideas, and helps to bring them to life. Thanks to the Government of Latvia, Liepaja City Council, and Talsi Region Council for support provided. Moreover, my gratitude goes to each and every special stage worker, security marshal, rescue and medical personnel, service park manager, and every one of you working hard to ensure the rally can happen safely and in high quality – especially, with rally happening in such a vast territory as it was in 2019!” expressed director of RA Events Raimonds Strokšs, when receiving the award.
