Route

  • Costa Daurada holiday resort of Salou, south of Barcelona, is the host town.
  • Both gravel and asphalt tests held in the hills of Tarragona.
  • It opens on Thursday night with a street stage in the Montjuïc area of Barcelona, on roads that hosted the Spanish Grand Prix F1 race on four occasions.
  • Friday’s opening leg is predominantly gravel, but with some asphalt in the long Terra Alta test.
  • The second and third legs are entirely asphalt.
  • Saturday’s 50km Escaladei stage celebrates the rally’s 50th edition. It is the longest test in the event’s history and features some roads not used since 2002. 
  • Short spectator-friendly test runs along Salou seafront through the town centre.

Challenge

  • Only mixed surface round of the season. 
  • Two days of asphalt are blended with a day of primarily gravel stages, but which also contains asphalt sections. 
  • Teams must convert their cars from gravel to asphalt specification after the opening leg in a longer than usual evening service. 
  • Drivers must quickly adapt their driving style to an overnight change in road surface. 
  • Fast, smooth sweeping asphalt is comparable to a race circuit in its characteristics.
