A genuine old-style tour of Corsica, featuring classic narrow and twisty mountain asphalt across the whole island. Service park is at Bastia Airport in the north-east, but the west coast town of Ajaccio hosts Thursday evening’s start ceremony. Endurance is to the fore on Friday, with two stages near the island’s capital that are tackled twice. There is no service and just a mid-leg tyre change in Porticcio. Saturday is the longest with two loops of two stages in the north totalling 131.92km. Sunday’s final leg covers just two tests in the east - but the opener is a monster 53.78km. Challenge 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.

Many crews have not previously tackled the rally so must write all-new pace notes. Narrow roads mean errors can be punished heavily. QUICKLINKS RESULTS HIGHLIGHTS MICHELIN RACECARD ENTRY LIST Car spec 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. History 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. Don’t miss The scenery - the mountain landscapes provide breathtaking views.
Stages often pass through narrow villages which offer superb viewing opportunities.
