“The Rally of 10,000 Corners”, as this event is affectionately known, takes place in stunning surroundings on the French island of Corsica and it promises to be challenging event with rough and abrasive asphalt testing tyres to the max.

The feature of this event is its tight and twisty mountain roads, which contain countless turns and often precarious runs between sheer cliff faces on one side and steep drops on the other. Combined with narrow roads, this means the Tour de Corse punishes mistakes harshly, whilst the varying road conditions also add into the mix of what is one of the most varied and testing events of the season.
