The Bosphorus Rally (also called Istanbul Rally, Fiat Rally, Rally of Turkey and Günaydin Rally) is a rally event, held near İstanbul, Turkey. It is one of the first international rally events in Turkey with the first Bosphorus Rally was held in 1972. The rally was regular part of the European Rally Championship since its first incarnation and was also included in the Intercontinental Rally Challenge calendar.

The Bosphorus Rally was also called Rally of Turkey for a while. However, the Rally of Turkey which became a round from the World Rally Championship has HQ in Antalya and thus it's completely different from the Bosphorus Rally.

Not to be confused with the Boğaziçi Rallisi, held since 1975, also called Bosphorus Rally in some editions.[1]
