Tour de Corse WRC 2018

How to combine your two great passions, which are travel (in an unforgettable place, of course) and rally races? One way is there and the island of beauty makes it available to you. In fact, from 5 to 8 April the 2018 edition of the WRC Tour de Corse will take place.

 

From Bastia to Ajaccio

Organized by the French Federation of Motor Sports (FFSA), the Tour de Corse is part of the World Rally Championship (WRC). The departure is scheduled for April 5 from Bastia, while the arrival point will be, on April 8, in Ajaccio, on the west coast of the island. In the middle, there are 333,5 kilometers of special stages that will test the skills of the drivers, and will give adrenaline thrills to those who decide to assist.

 

How to get

There is nothing simpler. Bastia, in fact, is one of the main ports where ferries dock for Corsica. Ferries that leave from the main Italian ports, such as Livorno, Piombino, Portoferraio and Savona. It’s enough book the trip and board the car (or the bike).

 

Bastia and Ajaccio

That is the starting point and the point of arrival of the race. That would really be a shame not to visit.

  • In one day, you can visit Bastia and see some of its most representative places: just as an example you can mention the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, Plage de l’Arinella, the Governors Palace, Jardin Romieu and Place Saint-Nicolas.
  • Once you arrive in the main town of Corsica, since the race is over, you will have some time to see Ajaccio and its surroundings: the streets and squares of the city, Scandola, Filitosa, Girolata await you.

In this way, you will see some of the most beautiful places in Corsica.
