The organization decides this year to exuberantly celebrate the 50th edition of the Tulpenrallye. To make the route even more interesting, it will not start in Noordwijk but in Aix-les-Bains. This French town is not far from Annecy, where 55 years ago the idea for the Tulpenrallye was born at the Lac d’Annecy. A large number of rally cars are transported to the starting point per trailer. In the Parc Hotel du Casino the reception is held, with a Dutch barrel organ, and that evening the first dinner is being held with all participants and officials in the Casino of Aix-les-Bains.

On the first day a long loop is driven through the Alps, with a beautiful route through the Chartreuse. The Chamrousse (1700 meters high) is then driven (but is still completely in the clouds), followed by the 21 bends on the way to lunch in Alpe d’Huez at almost 2000 meters. The afternoon route has to be changed drastically as there is still too much snow on the Cols de Glandon and de la Croix de Fer. Participants return to Aix-les-Bains in the evening. On Tuesday the teams will ride to Malbuisson through the Jura, via the Col de Colombier which is also driven in the clouds and a Route Control at Hotel Ripotot in Champagnole, where in 1961 there was also a Control in the Tulpenrallye. A number of routes on the Tuesday are taken from the roadbooks from the ’50s and ’60s. On Wednesday all major cols in the Vosges are driven, with the Tulpenrallye visiting this region for the 30th  time. The finish is this evening in Riquewihr, with the final meters of the stage through the village and dinner with many regional specialties in the city gate. On Thursday, the participants drive through the last passes in the Vosges and via the lunch in La Roche to the Alvisse Parc Hotel in Luxembourg. On Friday most of Belgium will be driven to the Priory Corsendonck near Turnhout, where the participants will let the Corsendonck beer brewed in the Priory flow well. The Friday route is the longest with 440 km and after the problems in the previous year, a number of additional measures have been taken to ensure that the route runs smoothly through Belgium. On Saturday, another secret stage will be held; again on the test track of DAF Trucks. In the route, slopes of 24% are included. Via lunch at Fortis Bank in Utrecht, the participants reach the finish in Noordwijk.

With 222 teams at the start, this is the fifth largest Tulpenrallye. The participants are divided over the Sporting (152), Touring (63) and Vintage (7) classes. Count Hugo van Zuylen van Nijevelt, the first Dutch winner in 1953, appears at the start. He is navigated by the Briton Keith Clements in a Jowett Javelin from 1952. In the same car the Count won the Tulpenrallye in 1953. A large number of former winners do appear at the start: Eddy van den Hoorn / René Smeets, Bert Dolk / Robert Rorife , Jan Ebus / Jan Berkhof, Adrie Brugmans / Jaap Daamen and Horst Deumel / Willi Potjans have all won the Tulpenrallye in recent years. Renger Guliker is also starting again. Jochen Berger won the Tulpenrallye in 1974 together with Walter Röhrl and starts in an Opel from the museum of the German factory. Also André Schoonenwolf (1982 and 1994) and Anja Lieuwma (1986) are present. Dries Jetten starts for the 20th time in a Tulpenrallye. The Jetten family is currently the family with the most Tulpenrallye starts.

The battle for the Coupe Rallye des Tulipes is very exciting all week. Westerman and Roosenboom with their Porsche take the lead on Wednesday, but the other contenders stay on a short distance. The regularity stages play an important role in the mutual struggle. Karel Westerman and Martin Roosenboom win this anniversary edition of the Tulpenrally. Eddy van den Hoorn and René Smeets are second again, followed by Jan Ebus and Jan Berkhof. Lilian van der Vaart and Ingeborg Guliker win the Coupe des Dames with Daf 55. The victories in the Touring and Vintage class are after an exciting fight for Piet van Doesburg and Jan-Willem Schoemakers (Porsche 356) and Marc Straathof and Alex von Moser with Lagonda LeMans. The participants are very enthusiastic about the 50th edition of the Tulpenrallye at the finish.
