- After Thursday evening’s start in Monte-Carlo’s famous Casino Square, two tough late-night stages in darkness in the southern Alps provide the opening competition en route to the service park in Gap.
- Two loops of three geographically distant tests south-east and east of Gap form a tiring and difficult Friday. Curbans – Venterol is a variation of a 2019 test, while Avançons – Notre Dame du Laus was also tackled last year. They add up to 122.58km, more than a third of the rally’s competitive distance.
- A Saturday double loop of the well-known Saint-Léger-les-Mélèzes – La Bâtie-Neuve and La Bréole – Selonnet stages around Gap are identical to last year. After the rally’s final service in Gap, a long journey south takes competitors back to Monaco.
- As is traditional, Sunday’s finale runs in the Alpes Maritimes mountains above the Principality and is identical to last year. Two passes over the legendary Col de Turini feature in La Bollène-Vésubie – Peïra-Cava, while the second pass of La Cabanette – Col de Braus forms the event-closing Wolf Power Stage.
- Col de Turini. One of the sport’s iconic locations, where enormous crowds gather to watch competitors cross the mountain summit in Sunday’s La Bollene Vesubie – Peira Cava test. An incredible atmosphere, especially if there is snow, and a ‘must-do’ for visitors.
