Rally de España

Rally Spain has a varied history in international and European competition. First held in 1957, the event was added to the European Championship in 1975. It wasn’t until 1991 when it joined the WRC based in Costa Brava. The rally moved venue to Salou in 2002 where it was originated as a pure tarmac event. Since 2010, it has held the unique privilege of being the championship’s only mixed surface rally with the current itinerary taking in one full day of tarmac before moving to gravel.

Crews have just a 75-minute service at the end of Friday to transform the specification of the rally cars to cope with the switch in terrain. It’s an impressively choreographed service, which makes Rally Spain truly special.
