Route

  • Opening night start ceremony and super special stage in south coast town of Cagliari kicks off new-look route.
  • The second day takes competitors to well-known stages in scenic hills and undulating forests south of Olbia.
  • Saturday’s leg returns to the same area, before ending with two tests near Sassari in the north. It’s a HUGE day with 188.50km of stages, including two passes of the 59.70km Monte Lerno.
  • Sassari stages are repeated on the final day, as well as two runs over a new stage near Alghero.

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.
