Always a highlight of the WRC calendar, Rally Italia Sardegna combines fast narrow roads with spectacular dusty jumps. One of the shortest competitive distances of the season, the rally is no less of a challenge. Fans witness an exhilarating ride against a backdrop of coastal scenery and in the searing Sardinian summer sunshine. The Alghero based service park gives the event a holiday feel but there’s no relaxing for the crews. Competitive rallying in Italy has blossomed since its first event in 1928, the mixed surface ‘Rally of the Flowers’ at Sanremo. The Mediterranean country has played host to a WRC round since the debut championship season in 1973, moving the round to Sardinia in 2004.
Our drivers took victory on over 50% of the stages at Rally Italia Sardegna, as Thierry and Martijn claimed a fourth podium finish of the year.
