IPA Bosnia & Herzegovina’s Bijeljina Region organises 4th International IPA Meeting of ‘Auto Slalom’

19 Jun 2019


By now a regular event in our calendar, the ‘4th International IPA Meeting Bijeljina 2019’, featuring car slalom races, was held from 3-5 May 2019 in Bijeljina. This event has become a main attraction and activity of our IPA region for the past three years.

The 600m slalom race track includes many obstacles and bends that make it hard for the drivers to finish the track in as fast a time as possible. 32 competitors in 3 categories took part in both women's and men's competitions. A summary of the classification can be seen in the table below. In addition to the ‘Auto Slalom’, guests were able to enjoy the charming surroundings of the restaurant and hotel ‘Semberski Salaš’, with its traditional cuisine and a beautiful atmosphere.
