About RallyRACC Catalunya - Rally de España
Only mixed surface round of the season as two days of asphalt are blended with a day of primarily gravel.
After the first full day teams convert their cars from gravel to asphalt specification in a longer than usual evening service to accommodate the surface change.
Drivers must quickly adapt their driving style to an overnight change in road surface.
Fast, smooth, sweeping asphalt is comparable to a race circuit in its characteristics.
First run in 1957 and included in the European Championship from 1975.
Entered the WRC in 1991 when it was based on the Costa Brava in Lloret de Mar.
Relocated to Salou in 2002 and after being a pure asphalt event, it developed into a mixed surface event in 2010.
Sébastien Loeb dominated the rally, winning every year between 2005 and 2012.
Both asphalt and gravel set-up required for the mixed roads.
Different tyres are needed for the two surfaces.
Asphalt is abrasive and if temperatures are hot, drivers must manage tyre wear carefully.
