The race and special stages of the Sulcis Iglesiente Rally

The competition proposed by the Rally Sulcis Iglesiente promises to be a spectacular event with no less than three races, all on asphalt: the Modern Rally, the Historic Rally, and the Regularity Sports Rally.

Powerful four-wheel vehicles will whizz along breathtaking routes that highlight all the aspects of the Sardinian territory that deserve to be experienced and enhanced.

More than 60 km of timed routes will thrill us, showing off no less than 13 Sardinian municipalities: Iglesias, Carbonia, Fluminimaggiore, Gonnesa, Perdaxius, San Giovanni Suergiu, Narcao, Nuxis, Buggerru, Villamassargia, Tratalias, Santadi and Villaperuccio will be part of the race, displaying themselves in all their splendour.

Of the special stages, the first will take place on Saturday 18 March and will be at night, providing a spectacle of unique beauty, and will end with a regrouping at the car park of the Campo Sportivo Monteponi, in Via Valverde, Iglesias.

The remaining nine tests will take place on Sunday. The special races will be interspersed with three regroupings, the last of which will be at the Cantine di Santadi, which is also a partner of the race.
