Route

  • Historic Strasbourg, nestled on the German border between the Vosges mountains and the Black Forest, is the hub for a fifth year. 
  • It is the shortest round of the season with just over 300km of stages. The opening leg visits the Bas-Rhin and Vosges mountains while the second day journeys further south into the Haut Rhin, with remote service in Colmar. 
  • Sunday is based around the town of Saverne, replacing the traditional final day’s action around Sébastien Loeb’s home town of Haguenau. 
  • The Strabourg city stage, which ends outside the European Parliament, has been moved back 24 hours from Thursday to Friday evening.

Challenge

  • Inconsistent roads traverse both narrow and fast sections.
  • Cold temperatures and rain likely, creating plenty of tyre choice dilemmas.
  • Working efficiently with safety note crews, who drive the stages ahead of competitors, to have up-to-date information about road surface and weather. 
  • Vineyard stages are wider than those used in Rallye Deutschland.
  • Speeds top 200kph on undulating forests roads, steep climbs and long corners in the Vosges mountains.
