- The big novelty is the return of Mortágua on Friday afternoon. It is 19 years since the famous test graced Portugal’s WRC round, when Richard Burns stood on the top step of the podium.
- Saturday night’s street stage in Porto. Back after a year away - expect huge crowds.
- Felgueiras – another long-term absentee makes a welcome return to the agenda in Sunday’s final leg. Drivers get to enjoy the 9.16km test twice.
