Back in RDRC after two seasons away, Rally Spain presents the drivers with an extremely flowing, fast, wide tarmac-road, and is the only pure tarmac event of the season. After having a very challenging time in Poland, this is sure to be a welcome change for the drivers. Smoother more gentle roads, and a bit more leniency in terms of services. It almost looks easy. Almost. A pure tarmac event might also bring some new guys to the front, for all we know there is a Gilles Panizzi among us! Rally Spain will cover 122km of special stages which will fly by really quick. Blink and you'll miss it!
The different classes are getting their championship rivals sorted at this point in the season. But it's quite evident that behind fight for the titles, it is a big group of drivers swapping positions all the time. It's still everything to fight for, for every driver in the field. As this is the only pure tarmac event, I wouldn't be surprised to see tarmac specialists show up, and take some glory. Also, with the very fast stages, combined with how smooth and wide they are, it's a very good chance that we will see the RDRC-2 cars being able to fight for, and possibly even win the rally outright! It's certainly going to be interesting to see!
