    Two questions regarding service park:
    1) is it open to public on wednesday?
    2) we are travelling with a disabled person (who owns the EU parking card) - any benefit in parking closer to the service park?

    Hi

    It's opened on wednesday, and IMHO it's the best day to get there.

    I've been to RACC just once and then we were made to walk ridiculous routes (uphill) to get to the service park. I'd suggest you ask this directly from the organization, it could save you a lot of trouble.

    Thanks, I've just done that.

    I have one more question/request for tips. Where would be the best opportunity to get closest to the cars (static/parked up) without too much hassle? Obviously service park is not the ideal place (too many people and you have the barriers between you and the cars). As I've seen from several YouTube videos (Germany, Corsica, Finland), usually the crews stop and prepare few hundred meters before starting the shakedown - and people get to walk around the cars. But I don't know if that's the case for Spain as well and also I think it is quite shame to sacrifice shakedown for this (one less gravel stage, which is the main reason we are there for). So what about the area before/after the start/finish of Salou superspecial (which I'm not too keen to see, so no problem to sacrifice that)? Or perhaps some regroup? Or last idea that we did in Poland few years back - follow the cars from service to the first stage on Sunday morning and at some point (~1km before the stage) they stop to check pressures and do final preparations.

    Didnt know this. It is indeed crucial for him but i wonder how many miracles they can make with just one test, they were really nowhere in Germany.

    Time will tell.

    Corsica had a lot of smooth, wide and fast sections this year and Citroen's were especially lost there. Basically the only stage where Ogier was fast was the rough and long stage and there won't be sections like that in Catalunya.

    As the situation looks now I actually expect MSport to have clearly the fastest car on tarmac in Spain. They were probably fastest already in Corsica and also in Germany Suninen's times were great.
    Toyota pace does seem to be slightly reduced by the wing changes and Spanish tarmac is where this should be very noticable.
    Hyundai (for Neuville and Sordo) did seem to be on Toyota level in Germany, but those stages are mostly quite a bit different from Spanish tarmac. Question is if they come with some more drastic changes now that Loeb has done two testing rallies and Neuville is going to do another one this weekend.
