Route

  • Rugged and sun-baked gravel tracks offer gruelling conditions amid stunning scenery on the Mediterranean holiday island. 
  • Rally base and service park are in the west coast town of Alghero with special stages in the north of the island. 
  • After a super special near Alghero on Thursday evening, crews overnight in Olbia on the opposite coast.
  • Friday features four stages run twice for a total of 125.46km, bringing the return of two classic rough and rocky tests - Terranova and Monte Olia.
  • Saturday is the longest and toughest leg with 143.16km divided over six stages in the Monte Acuto region.
  • Sunday’s finale is identical to 2016, featuring two repeated stages covering 42.04km on the coast north of the host town.

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.
