Route

  • Alghero, on the west coast of the Mediterranean island, hosts the service park for a second year. 
  • A partly-new street stage in the southern city of Cagliari kicks off the action on Thursday night, with competitors overnighting there. 
  • Friday’s opening leg near Oristano is new, with some roads never driven before and others unused since 2011. 
  • Saturday is a marathon with more than 200km of stages, some in the opposite direction to last year. 
  • It includes the stomach-churning Micky’s Jump in Monte Lerno and a test at Ippodromo di Chilivani horse racing track. 
  • The final leg north of Alghero contains the new Monte Baranta test and the Cala Flumini coastal run.

Challenge

  • Fast but narrow roads lined with bushes, trees or rocks right on the edge leave no room for error.
  • Hard base roads covered by a sandy surface, which is swept away during the first pass to leave rougher and rutted conditions for the second run. 
  • Thin layer of slippery gravel on the surface disadvantages early starters in the opening leg.
  • Temperatures approach 30°C so it will be uncomfortable in the cars with higher than normal stress on engines and transmissions.
