RallyRACC Catalunya – Costa Daurada roars in Salou

RallyRACC Catalunya – Costa Daurada kicks off on Thursday, reaching this year its 50th anniversary. The programme for the RallyRACC will start with the shakedown that will be held, as in previous editions, in Salou’s Emprius area.

It will provide drivers with a rally cross route of 2.94km. For the first time this year, RallyRACC Catalunya – Costa Daurada participants will have to drive round a tarmac roundabout, which will push the excitement of the event to a whole new level, as cars will perform spectacular power slides.
