    Rent a car or drive there. Or join some organised tour.
    Never stop dreaming because one day it might happen.

    For your first time go with rally travel. You'll be in a hotel full of rally fans, close to service and shakedown. You'll get all the stage info you'll need. It's very reasonable price wise for self drive. I couldn't recommend them enough.

    This has to be the easiest rally for a newb to do self-sufficiently. Fly to Reus, hire a car, rent an apartment in Salou (huge choice). Get itinerary and use google maps to plot route. If you have a travelling companion the car and accommodation are halved in cost! The organisers post thorough stage guides well in advance. Just remember that any iconic locations such as El Molar hairpin fill up 3 hours in advance of 1st car.

    Really interested to see this rally myself too someday. Just wish more rally's would add the bus option to stages. Not feeling comfortable driving abroad yet.

    I was about to say something similar

    Last year was my first RACC, we spent a day doing reccce for friday/saturday stages, and we managed to see 3 different stages on gravel (Pesel, all the cars, Gandesa, only the WRC, and La Fatarella, all the cars).

    There are a lot of small "roads" which give access to gravel stages, and you can easily walk to the tarmac stages through the forest.

    Thanks for the advice everyone 😊 I found a tour company if anyone else I interested - rallytravel.com

    They do full guided tours or the option to stay with them and use a hire car.

    Definitely want to stay Thursday to Monday and enjoy the variety of stages.

    For anyone who hasn't been to a rally, Wales gb is worth a shout, been a few times and it's a great experience

    I really enjoyed my first time in Spain, only thing i didn't like was the entry to servicepark and the Spaniards constantly tailgating you, did manage to outdrive a couple in my Panda though!

    Did some crazy entry roads, make sure you have proper insurance on the car...

    I notice the location of shakedown is yet to be decided according to rally guide 1, perhaps been too popular with its town location, it was VERY busy last year.
