Route

  • 2016 rally details not yet available

Challenge

  • Tight and twisty mountain roads are often bordered on one side by a rock face and on the other by a steep drop into the sea. 
  • Rough and abrasive asphalt places high demands on tyres. 
  • Many crews have not previously tackled the rally so must write all-new pace notes. 
  • Narrow roads mean errors can be punished heavily.

Car spec

  • Asphalt suspension – low settings which provide stability and improved balance. 
  • Different road characteristics in the same group of stages mean set-up is often a compromise.

History

  • France’s WRC round was held on the stunning island of Corsica from 1973 to 2008. 
  • Never-ending sequences of turns earned the event the nickname ‘The Rally of 10,000 Corners’. 
  • After a year’s absence due to rotation, the rally moved to the Alsace region of the French mainland in 2010.
