Multi surface WRC challenge awaits Pirelli in Spain
|This weekend’s Rally RACC Catalunya-Costa Durada (October 23-25) will test Pirelli’s tyres on two fronts.
The Spanish round of the FIA World Rally Championship runs on both gravel and asphalt surfaces. That means Pirelli will bring both the RKH/RKS cut slick and the KHA and KSA gravel tyres. Each tyre pattern is offered in hard and soft compounds.
Thursday’s Barcelona spectator special stage takes place on asphalt, and it serves as a short 3.2-kilometre introduction to the weekend’s action. After that the rally is based in Salou. The Pirelli-equipped crews will get into their stride on Friday, when they’ll complete 128.6-kilometres on asphalt. A similar distance will be completed on Saturday, before the action switches to gravel for Sunday.
