RALLY ITALIA SARDEGNA 2018

RALLY ITALIA SARDEGNA 2018

Info

Event History

  • Italy’s WRC counter was formerly a mixed surface event based in Sanremo, and known as the Rally of the Flowers when it was first held in 1928.
  • It formed part of the WRC from the championship’s beginning in 1973.
  • Michèle Mouton became the first and only woman to win a WRC round when she triumphed in 1981.
  • The rally moved to the Mediterranean island of Sardinia in 2004.

Challenge

  • Fast but narrow roads lined with bushes, trees or rocks right on the edge leave no room for error.
  • Hard base roads covered by a sandy surface, which is swept away during the first pass to leave rougher and rutted conditions for the second run.
  • Thin layer of slippery gravel on the surface disadvantages early starters in the opening leg.
  • Temperatures approach 30°C so it will be uncomfortable in the cars with higher than normal stress on engines and transmissions.

Car Setup

  • Gravel suspension.
  • Drivers raise the ride height for rutted roads during the second pass of stages.
  • Hard and soft compound tyres available.
