Stages

  • A couple of hours after Thursday evening’s start ceremony in central Tartu, a short fan-favourite parkland stage next to the service park kicks off the competition.
  • Friday brings the longest leg of the weekend with 139.18km of action over identical morning and afternoon loops. Peipsääre, the longest test of the rally at 24.35km, and Mustvee, north of Tartu, are followed by Raanitsa and Vastsemõisa, to the south. The two laps are separated by service.
  • Saturday is centred around Otepää in south Estonia, regarded as the country’s winter capital. Otepää means Ott’s Head’ in the South Estonian dialect. Mr Tänak should feel at home then.......
  • The northerly Elva launches the day before a trio of tests north and south of the town at Mäeküla, Otepää and Neeruti. After service, the quartet are driven for a second time before the day is wrapped up with an evening re-run of Thursday’s Tartu curtain-raiser. It adds up to 95.40km of action.
  • Sunday is the shortest leg but still features a healthy 78.02km of stages in a full day’s competition. Two loops of Raadi, Kanepi and Kambja complete the event, the second pass of Kambja forming the Wolf Power Stage.
  • The 24 tests cover 314.26km.

 

Iconic Stage

  • Sunday’s 15.95km Kambja test has grown into a classic which has been part of Rally Estonia for six years. The fast and flowing roads contain many technical crests and tight corners. The highlight is the spectacular Leigo fan area, where cars meet breathtaking nature with many lakes. The test is slightly shorter than 2021.
