The X Rally Lloret de Mar is one of the most exciting sporting events of the rally season in Spain, with a spectacular route that spans the roads and landscapes of the Costa Brava. The course is designed to test the skills of the drivers and their cars, with a mix of mountain roads, hairpin turns and high-speed straightaways.
On February 10 and 11, the X Rally Lloret de Mar will take place, organized by V-Line Org. and the Lloret de Mar Town Hall. This year the rally celebrates its 10th anniversary with an itinerary that will cover the most iconic roads in the province of Girona. The X Rally Lloret de Mar is scored, with a coefficient of 8 for a wide variety of championships, cups and trophies.
The promenade of Lloret de Mar will host the start and finish podiums of the stages, as well as the parc fermé and regrouping. The service park will be located in front of the Hotel Evenia Olympic Palace. Observation points are strategically placed along the route so that spectators can witness the most exciting moments of the race.
The total distance of the route is 590 kilometers. It will have 12 timed sections (shakedown), 6 different sections, divided into 2 legs (with two sections each leg):
- SS1/SS4 Tossa - Cadiretes: skirts the Costa Brava from Tossa de Mar until reaching the crossroads towards the hermitage of St. Grau; the final part is extended a few kilometers by adding the technical descent in the direction of Llagostera, making it the longest section of the competition.
- SS2/SS5 Els Àngels: due to its proximity to the city of Girona, it is a section that usually gathers a lot of people. It begins with an ascent up to the crossroads of the Sanctuary of Els Àngels, which includes the part of descent, until practically reaching Madremanya.
- SS3/SS6 Santa Pellaia: the shortest section of the rally but quite technical, both due to the road between La Bisbal and Cassà de la Selva, and due to the fact that the two passes were carried out practically without daylight.
- SS7/SS10 Cladells: runs along the road that goes from Santa Coloma de Farners to Sant Hilari Sacalm; It is a popular section because of the bathtubs, some very characteristic counter-banked linked curves that are very popular with the participants.
- SS8/SS11 Sant Hilari - Collsaplana: this edition incorporates one of the quintessential sections of Les Guilleries. From Sant Hilari Sacalm to Pla de les Arenes to the crossroads where they will begin the descent to Sant Sadurní d'Osormort.
- SS9/SS12 Osor: the last segment of the test is a demanding stage starting from Sant Hilari Sacalm, which requires attention to brake wear, concentration and confidence.
