26.04.2021

TALSI, LATVIA
April 26, 2021

For the third time, part of Rally Liepāja, second round of the 2021 FIA European Rally Championship, will take place in Talsi Region. Welcoming the arrival of Rally Liepāja’s special stages to Talsi region, a remarkable activity has been initiated. All the rally fans are invited to donate a small-scale model car in order to create a unique large scale wall bearing name “TALSI”.

The honorary first donation was made by rally organizer, Talsi native Raimonds Strokšs, who also encourage every rally enthusiast to get involved in such a historic and important event for rally and city of Talsi. “I want to express my gratitude to Talsi Region Municipality for their continuous collaboration and their passion to initiate such an activity. Rally and Talsi play a very special role in my life, and I am very happy to start this wall, as well as I encourage each and every one living in Talsi to take an active part, only collectively we will be able to create such a unique wall. Let us begin!”

A model car was also donated by the chairwomen of Talsi Region Municipality Sandra Pētersone. “Rally has always been a very special event to Talsi and our region. Over the years this event has grown into an international spectacle, and we are very proud of the effort put forward by Raimonds Strokšs and his team organizing the event. In 2021 we continue nurture the well-established rally traditions in our region and support Rally Liepāja and its events taking place from Talsi to Liepāja. I hope that citizens and guests of Talsi will have an opportunity to witness that special aura that will be embodied in this unique wall, as well as other colourful events that will be permitted by the epidemiological situation.”

“Let Talsi rumble again!” Such was a wish of the executive of Talsi Ģirts Kalnbirze, whilst donating his model car. Kalnbirze expressed the ongoing work getting ready to welcome the rally, and making sure it is a festivity for everyone.

All rally fans are welcome to go through the individual stashes of toys in order to find a decent looking small-scale model car to donate for this wall. There is no limit of how many cars can be donated; though, the size of the car should be up to 10 centimetres in length.

You can donate the model cars at the administrative building of Talsi Region Municipality, located at Kareivju Street 7 by placing the cars in a special box. And make sure to do this before the final deadline on May 17.

The wall should later be located next to promenade of the Lake Talsi, and the opening date shall be announced in due time.
