Rally Spain essentials – route details

By FIA media team

THE 2022 ROUTE

After reverting to a Tarmac-only format in 2021 having featured gravel and mixed-surface stages since 2010, this year’s RallyRACC Catalunya – Rally de España kicks off on Friday October 21 with two new stages north of host-town Salou. Following runs through Els Omells – Malda and Serra de la Llena, the route takes in Les Garrigues Altes and the super-demanding Riba-roja with the two stages tackled in an opposite direction to 2021. Following service in the service park in Salou located within the grounds of the PortAventura World theme park the four morning stages are repeated in the afternoon.

Saturday’s second leg northeast of Salou begins with runs through Savallà and Querol-Les Pobles prior to the famous El Montmell stage, the longest of the rally at 24.18 kilometres. Once the stages have been run for a second time in the afternoon following a service halt in Salou, a 2.15-kilometre seaside stage in the town completes the day’s action.

The rally-deciding Sunday leg is the shortest at 56.10 kilometres and begins with the first of two visits to the Pratip test from 07h00 CET. Riudecanyes, which is best known for its roundabout at Coll de la Teixeta, counts as the Power Stage when it runs for a second time from 12h18 CET.

Competitors in FIA European Rally Championship, of which RallyRACC is the final round of the 2022 season, will tackle the opening two legs of the event ahead of the finish on Saturday evening.
