A stage from the RallyRACC Catalunya - Costa Daurada. 4.4km, 35 corners
This particular section has been used 11 times in the last 14 years. Most of the times as part of the Riudecanyes stage (with a donut around the roundabout), but in 2011 as PowerStage (with the roundabout as hairpin). In the 2022 edition of RALLYRACC RALLY DE ESPAÑA, this exact stage was used as shakedown. Ogier set the scratch time of 2:40.1. Below is a video comparison (older version).
RallyRACC describes the section from the 2022 edition as follows: "One of the most crowded stages of the event, identical to how it was celebrated in 2017 and 2018. The first part is well known due to its characteristic roundabouts on the N-420 road. The mountain acts as a natural grandstand offering a great area to watch the cars negotiating the first roundabout, around which the participants will have to make a complete lap (doughnut style). "
WRC commentator Julian Porter described the stage as: "like New-Zealand, but on tarmac, and wider..."

The stage is run twice per event, at the end of October. The first run is usually at sunrise, around 08:00. The second run is at noon. Conditions are usually clear or overcast, but the 2011 powerstage had crews facing wet to damp conditions.
Onboard of full Riudecanyes stage, this Coll de la Teixeta layout runs up to the 2:55 minute mark.
The stage is created specifically for Assetto Corsa, with modern modelling standards. It will work with and without Shader Patch and Content Manager, but it is made to be used with Shader Patch/Sol/Content Manager.
- Lidar data from spanish government, very precise cambers and elevations
- Referenced from photographs, onboards and TV footage from WRC live and Google StreetView
- Detailed Physical road surface
- 2 layouts
- Replay Cameras
- Track Map
- Shader patch features (grassFX, rainFX, animated wind turbines, night lighting)
- Including prepared pacenotes for Patrick Brunners Co-driver app, based on real pacenotes of Kris Meeke and Paul Nagle. Usable with SRD's voice pack.
There are 20 pits, although the roundabout will give problems with AI. The two layouts have a "time control" section to warm up your tires.
It is five years ago that I started working on Spanish rally stages. I hope you enjoy my hard work. If you are making new track cameras, new AI or better shader patch configs, please share them with me! I'd love to incorporate it into the track. If you encounter any bugs/issues, please report them in the thread!
The full 16 km Riudecanyes/Duesaigües stage is now also finished, and can be found on my Patreon page.
