FIA WORLD RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP

RALLY ITALIA SARDEGNA 2020

RALLY ITALIA SARDEGNA 2020

Info

Stages

  • Rugged and sun-baked gravel tracks in the north of the picture postcard Mediterranean island ensure one of the season’s sternest challenges. Fast and narrow stages leave no margin for error, while intense heat combines with abrasive roads to test tyres to the limit.

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 medium compound tyres available.
