Seaside showdown for Rome's ERC rally
Italy’s round of the FIA European Rally Championship is set for a seaside showdown when Ostia – on the banks of the Tyrrhenian Sea – brings the action to a close with a superspecial stage on Sunday 22 July.
The 0.65-kilometre Ostia Super Special Sky Gate in the Province of Rome is due to take place from 19h18 local time and forms SS15 of Rally di Roma Capitale.
Ostia, to the west of central Rome, hosted the finishing podium and prize giving when Rally di Roma Capitale formed part of the ERC roster for the first time. The inclusion of a competitive stage in Ostia represents another exciting milestone in the history of the all-asphalt event.
