16/08/2012 – Olbia 16th August 2012 - With the publication of the Supplementary Regulations and the opening of entries, Rally Italia Sardegna 2012 - the Italian round of the FIA World Rally Championship, organised by the Automobile Club d'Italia with the support of the Regione Autonoma della Sardegna, which will take place from 18 to 21 October - starts its engines looking ahead to the upcoming competition. The main changes are the four-day itinerary, the remote service in Sassari and the return of the finish ramp and Prize Giving to Porto Cervo. Compared to the first itinerary issued, there's a decrease in the total competitive kilometres staged, totalling 306km instead of the 360km initially scheduled. This cut was made with an aim of reducing costs for competitors as Rally Italia Sardegna will be the penultimate event of the World Rally Championship. On the other hand, the number of Special Stages remains unchanged, with 16 competitive stages but with a different distribution compared to the first version of the itinerary. Simply put, Rally Italia Sardegna 2012 - despite a slightly shorter itinerary - will maintain all its characteristics of difficulty and endurance which made this rally one of the most technical challenges on the WRC calendar. The main itinerary changes concern the last day of competition on Sunday 21st October, which will only feature two runs through the 8.24km Gallura Special Stage and not the previously announced 50km Monte Olia-Terranova stage. Otherwise only small touches have been made to the itinerary, for example on the first day of the rally on Thursday, which will see the 28.14km Terranova stage run twice instead of the 50km Monte Olia-Terranova. The rally will begin with a brand new 3km Qualifying Stage in Telti on Thursday 18th October. This stage offers an ideal terrain for the P1 and P2 drivers QS, kicking off at 11.05. The competition will start in earnest on the same day at 15.00, when the cars leave the Isola Bianca Service Park in Olbia and - after going through the city's main street Corso Umberto I at 15.12 - they head to the first section of the event, now marked by two runs through the Terranova stage, located in the Monte Olia and Terranova forester yards, covering a combined stage distance of 56.28km. The 29.68km Monte Lerno stage will open the day on Friday 19th October. This stage includes the famous 'Micky's Jump' which a Rally Italia Sardegna calling card from both a sporting and media point of view. Monte Lerno will be immediately followed by the brand new Tergu-Osilo test, which will be used for the first time in the WRC - a historical, beautiful and fast 14.88km Special Stage - used in the golden era of the Costa Smeralda rally. The route then heads to another new stage, the 14km Castelsardo. The rally will cover a total of 117.36km on Friday and the competitors will visit the Remote Service Park in Sassari's Piazza Antonio Segni three times. On Saturday 20th October the rally will be based in the well-known Monte Acuto area, covering 115.92km. The itinerary includes the classic Coiluna (29,50 km) - with the Crastazza jump - the partially new Monti di Alà (14,49 km) and the Monte Olia (14,12 km) stages. The last day of the rally on Sunday 21st October - which will cover 16.48km - features two runs through the Gallura stage, the first one at 9.20 and the Power Stage run at 11.00. The finish will be on Sunday at 12.45 at the Marina Vecchia in Porto Cervo.
