- After Thursday evening’s Monaco start, an opening night based around the atmospheric Col de Turini in the Alpes Maritimes mountains lies in wait. The well-known Lucéram / Lantosque and La Bollène-Vésubie / Moulinet are driven in darkness and add up to 38.45km.
- Friday heads further north for two loops of three stages in the Mercantour National Park covering 97.86km. Morning and afternoon runs through Roure / Beuil, Guillaumes / Péone / Valberg and Val-de-Chalvagne / Entrevaux are separated by a tyre change in Puget-Théniers.
- The action switches west to the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence on Saturday for 92.46km of action. Le Fugeret / Thorame-Haute kicks off the day, before a double loop of Saint Jeannet / Malijai and the demanding Saint-Geniez / Thoard either side of a tyre change in Digne-les-Bains.
- Sunday’s finale returns to the Alpes-Maritimes. The new La Penne / Collongues and Briançonnet / Entrevaux are driven twice without service. The second pass of the latter forms the Wolf Power Stage with bonus points available. The four tests add up to 67.26km.
- The 17 stages cover 296.03km.
- Col de Turini – one of the WRC’s iconic locations. Huge crowds will watch competitors cross the mountain summit in Thursday night’s La Bollene Vesubie / Moulinet test, the longest of the rally at 23.25km. An incredible atmosphere at night, especially if there is snow, and THE place to get a first view of Rally1 cars in competition.
