Salou is getting ready to welcome the latest edition of the Rally RACC Catalunya, which this year has innovations with respect to the organisation of the itinerary. Like last year, the inaugural date for the Rally Catalunya 2013 will be in the city of Barcelona, where once again it is expected to attract a large number of fans. However, the true nerve centre of the Rally Costa Daurada is here in Salou where, for the first time, a two-kilometre super special stage will be held in the centre of the resort.
It is important to highlight that this 2013 edition of the Rally Catalunya is the ninth to be held entirely on the Costa Daurada.
The main novelties in this 49th edition of the Rally Costa Daurada are the modifications to the itinerary, with the introduction for the first time of three nocturnal asphalt stages to begin the rally on Friday 25 October. The next day, Saturday 26 October, the asphalt will once again be the protagonist of one of the most representative stages of the Rally Catalunya, with a couple of laps around Riudecanyes, El Priorat and Colldejou, ending on the two urban kilometres in Salou, to the great delight of the fans.
In addition to the two-kilometre super special stage in the urban centre of Salou on Saturday 26 October, our locality will be the setting for the shakedown on Thursday 24 October. The prize-giving on Sunday 27, the last day of the competition, will also be held here. The ceremony will take place at 16:35 hours on the Jaume I Promenade with the Mediterranean Sea as a backdrop. A photograph taken at night of the Citroen DS3 on Salou’s seafront promenade has been chosen for the official poster of this year’s Rally Catalunya, a rally that counts towards the Word Rally Championship.
