Estonia Countdown: Route + Maps

Get ready for an exhilarating ride this week (20 - 23 July) as Rally Estonia's lightning-fast gravel roads and jaw-dropping jumps host round eight of the FIA World Rally Championship.

Based in Tartu, the country's second-largest city, Rally Estonia boasts an action-packed itinerary featuring 21 special stages which will push average speeds to unprecedented heights this season. While the overall route remains similar to last year's edition, a series of updates and surprises have been incorporated to keep the teams on their toes.

The excitement begins on Thursday evening with a grand start ceremony at Town Hall Square, paving the way for the thrilling Tartu vald stage (3.35km). Positioned just a stone's throw away from the service park, the opener has been extended by nearly two kilometres for 2023 and integrates sections from the Wolf Power Stage of the previous year.

Friday hosts the event's longest day and encompasses seven high-speed stages totalling a distance of 133.38km. Peipsääre (24.35km), Mustvee (17.09km) and Raanitsa (21.45km) are each tackled twice before and after service while Neeruti (7.60km) concludes the action.

Saturday brings a barrage of rapid-fire speed tests, starting with two tests nestled around Otepää, Estonia’s beloved winter capital.

Double runs of Mäeküla (10.27km) and Otepää (11.15km) are followed by a service halt before the action resumes with Elva (11.73km) and Kanepi (16.48km), both of which are driven twice before a thrilling encore of the Tartu vald stage.

Four stages make up Sunday’s grand finale, beginning with the fresh challenge of Karaski (12.04km) - brand-new for this year. Kambja (18.50km) is up next before both stages are repeated, the latter serving as the bonus points-paying Wolf Power Stage.

The 21 stages cover 300.42km in a total route of 1366.66km.
