Stages

  • The short mixed surface Olbia - Cabu Abbas test in the suburbs of Olbia kicks off the action on Thursday evening before an overnight halt in the east coast city.
  • An 05.55 start on Friday takes competitors south for a double loop of Terranova and Monti di Ala’ e Buddoso’, the longest stage of the rally at 24.70km, in the morning. After service, the late afternoon and early evening comprises two passes of the north coast stages at Osilo - Tergu and Sedini - Castelsardo. It’s the longest leg of the weekend with 133.56km of action.
  • Saturday is only slightly shorter with 131.82km of competition. An even earlier 05.25 start precedes two runs of Tempio Pausania and Erula -Tula. After a tyre change in Buddusò, it’s onto classic roads in the Monte Acuto region. Coiluna - Loelle and Monte Lerno di Pattada are driven twice.
  • Sunday’s finale stays closer to Alghero and features familiar west coast closing day tests in Cala Flumini and Sassari - Argentiera. Both are driven twice, with Sassari – Argentiera hosting the final bonus-points paying Wolf Power Stage.
  • The 21 stages total 307.91km.

 

Iconic Stage

  • Saturday’s Monte Lerno di Pattada, home to the iconic Micky’s Jump. If you like your WRC action of a high-flying nature, then it gets no better than here. Cars hang in the sky as the road drops away beneath them. This stage is the only one to feature in all 19 editions of the event.
