Route

  • 2016 rally details not yet available

Challenge

  • The contrast between the fast stages of the gentle Calamuchita Valley, rugged roads in the plains of the Punilla Valley and rocky, narrow mountain tracks.
  • Sandy gravel roads become heavily rutted for the second pass and moving out of the ‘rails’ can pitch a car off the road.
  • Many river crossings in the valleys which become wide and deep in wet weather.

Car spec

  • Gravel suspension.
  • Drivers raise the ride height to cope with rutted roads for the second pass of stages.
  • Hard and soft compound tyres available.

History

  • First run in 1980 in Tucumán province in the north, when it was known as Rally Codasur.
  • The 1982 edition was cancelled due to the Falklands War between Britain and Argentina.
  • Moved to Bariloche, in the south, in 1983 but found its home in Cordoba in 1984.
  • Argentines are passionate soccer fans and in 2007 a stage was held at the River Plate Stadium in Buenos Aires while Cordoba stadium, home to Talleres, has twice hosted stages and the finish.
