Following Thursday evening’s opening ceremony in Alghero, an early morning start on Friday takes competitors back across the island for a double loop of Filigosu – Sa Conchedda and Terranova. After service, another double loop further north through Tempio Pausania and Erula – Tula ends the day after 127.40km of action.
Saturday follows the same format with almost 130km of competition, mainly in the Monte Acuto region. Classic roads in Coiluna – Loelle and Lerno – Monti di Ala’ are driven twice before service. Afternoon action near the north coast in Bortigiadas – Aggius – Viddalba and Sedini – Castelsardo complete the longest leg
The northernmost tip of the island hosts Sunday’s finale. An early morning lap through Arzachena – Braniatogghiu and Aglientu – Santa Teresa is repeated. The latter test hosts the final bonus-points paying Wolf Power Stage. It’s the shortest leg of the rally at 46.08km
The hub moves from the west coast to the east in Olbia, host of the event from 2004 to 2013. The service park overlooks the sea at Molo Brin, next to the town’s archaeological museum and a short walk from Olbia’s enchanting Old Town.
