40 Rally Islas Canarias El Corte Inglés - 03-03/12/2016
The event’s ERC return following a two-year absence is highly anticipated with the rally big on challenge and spectators. Because the stages frequently climb and descend, drivers pay close attention to corner speed and lines to ensure optimal momentum is maintained, while precise car set-up and pacenote accuracy are vital. One of the notable features of the stages is the abrasive surface, constructed partly from volcanic lava. It means grip levels are high and will remain constant if it rains, although tyre wear can increase. However, with the opportunity to take ‘cuts’ through corners limited, the roads remain relatively debris-free.
