Stages

  • Thursday evening’s start ceremony at Raadi leads directly into the short fan-favourite Tartu parkland stage next to the service park – an extended version of last year’s test, much of which is driven in the opposite direction.
  • Friday’s opening leg 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.......
  • Two loops of Arula, Otepää, Kanepi and Kambja are separated by service. The eight tests total 130.54km and while the names are familiar from 2020, the routes have been modified to keep crews alert. Kanepi will be used in the opposite direction to 2020.  
  • Saturday brings four challenging new stages for the longest leg of the weekend, with 132.86km of action. It follows the same format with identical loops driven morning and afternoon. Peipsääre, the longest test of the rally at 23.56km and Mustvee, north of Tartu, are followed by Raanitsa and Vastsemõisa, to the south. It is wrapped up with an evening re-run of Thursday’s curtain-raiser in Tartu itself.
  • Six tests covering 53.98km comprise Sunday’s finale. Neeruti and Elva, south of the host town, are followed by Tartu vald. All three are repeated, with the latter forming the Wolf Power Stage and finishing in the service park.
  • The 24 tests cover 314.16km.

 

Iconic Stage

  • Friday’s 17.85km Kambja test is a classic which has been part of Rally Estonia for five years. The fast and flowing roads contain many technical crests and tight corners. The highlight is the spectacular Leigo spectacular area, where cars meet breathtaking nature with many lakes. The test is slightly shorter than 2020, but features one new section.
