- Tight and twisty mountain roads are often bordered on one side by a rock face and on the other by a steep drop into the sea.
- Rough and abrasive asphalt places high demands on tyres.
- Narrow roads mean errors can be punished heavily.
- Twists and turns place huge emphasis on the making and accurate delivery of pace notes.
- Asphalt suspension – low settings which provide stability and improved balance.
- Different road characteristics in the same group of stages mean set-up is often a compromise.
- France’s WRC round was held on the stunning island of Corsica from 1973 to 2008.
- Never-ending sequences of turns earned the event the nickname ‘The Rally of 10,000 Corners’.
- After a year’s absence due to rotation, the rally moved to the Alsace region of the French mainland in 2010, before returning to Corsica in 2015.
