Route

  • Vast pampas plains contrast with rugged mountains and softer lakeland landscapes to provide three very different locations. 
  • Based in lakeside resort of Villa Carlos Paz, 700km north-west of Buenos Aires and 30 minutes from Cordoba city. 
  • Crowd-pleasing super special stage in downtown Cordoba kicks off the action on Thursday evening. 
  • Competitors head south on Friday for two loops of fast, sandy tracks in Santa Rosa de Calamuchita valley. Each ends with a popular super special at a theme park on the edge of Villa Carlos Paz. 
  • Second leg heads north-west into Punilla Valley for the longest day, again featuring two identical loops. 
  • Sunday climbs rock strewn roads of the Traslasierra mountains, famed for its moonlike landscape, and includes classic El Cóndor and Giulio Cesare tests.

Challenge

  • The contrast between soft roads in the Santa Rosa de Calamuchita Valley and rocky, narrow tracks in the Traslasierra mountains. 
  • 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. 
  • Early autumn in the southern hemisphere brings a risk of fog and possibly even ice in the mountains.
