In this fourth edition, the RACC and the Belgian organiser Ypres Historic Rally have signed an agreement to create the “Historic Regularity Challenge” for 2020, with the aim of promoting and sharing the experiences of these two historic rallies. The winner of the Rally Catalunya Històric 2020 will get a free entry for the Ypres Historic Regularity Rally 2020 (27 to 29 November), while the winning crew of the Belgian race will get a free entry for the Rally Catalunya Històric 2021. Moreover, the overall winner of the “Historic Regularity Challenge” will be able to enter the Rallye Monte-Carlo Historique 2021 for free.
At a sports level, the Rally Catalunya Històric-Rally de Les Caves is based on regularity on closed roads, combining daytime and night-time driving, this time offering two categories to choose from: Regularity Sport (top speed 55 km/h) with high and low average and Regularity Super Sport (top speed 70 km/h).

Although the itinerary will remain unveiled until the final moment, the RACC has revealed the location of the end of the first leg, and the place in which the rally will spend the night on 28 February: Salou. The notoriety of this tourist village at the Costa Daurada is booming, largely due to the fact that the village has been host to the RallyRACC, an event that forms part of the FIA World Rally Championship, and its urban stage, for fifteen years. Salou is the ideal frame for the popular parc fermé, and the start and finish podium of the world championship event. The novelty of the inclusion of Salou into the Rally Catalunya Històric is great news for participants and followers.
