RALLYE DE FRANCE - Schedule

ROUND 13 FIA WORLD RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP 9 - 12 October 2008

Rally Route

The rally is again based in Ajaccio with the action held over stages close to the island's west coast.  Each leg comprises a different loop of stages used in both the morning and afternoon.  Most of the roads are familiar to competitors from last year, but the opening two legs each include a test not used for several years and the final day's stages have been reversed from 2007.  The first and last legs head south of Ajaccio with the middle day's competition stretching north of the town.  The three legs are all of similar distance and drivers face 16 stages covering 359.02km in a route of 1094.36km.
