    https://www.rallyislascanarias.com/i...shes-its-route

    The 47 Rally Islas Canarias opens its entries period and publishes its route

    The second round of the FIA European Rally Championship opens the entries period today, Wednesday, March 8. The event that is held on the island of Gran Canaria, which will also accommodate the Superchampionship of Spain and the championships of the Canary Islands and Las Palmas, also makes public its route made up of 13 special stages to be held between May 4 and 6.
    Two months away from its celebration, the 47 Rally Islas Canarias puts all the meat on the grill. Two aspects as symbolic as the opening of entries period and the official publication of the route come together this Wednesday, March 8.
    The participants of the renewed FIA European Rally Championship, the Spanish Superchampionship, as well as the regional and provincial event of Las Palmas, can begin to register for the event that is set for May 4 and 6. The official website, www.rallyislascanarias.com, already has all the essential documents to cover this process.
    On the other hand, the action will start soon on Thursday, May 4. San Mateo, in the same location as last year, will host the free practice from 12:15 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. With a 3.09 km route, it will be the scene of a qualifying stage that will start at 3:03 p.m. Subsequently, from 4:15 p.m. and for two hours, this same road will serve as tests for the shakedown.
    Green light in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
    At 9:05 p.m. the event will officially begin with the super special of 'Las Palmas de Gran Canaria - DISA' (1.88 km). As last year, the surroundings of the Estadio Gran Canaria and the Gran Canaria Arena will be part of the first time trial challenge, although this year with a great novelty that will be announced soon.
    Continuing with the route, the first leg will continue on May 5 with the specials of 'Gáldar' (14.95 km at 10:28 and 15:20), 'Tejeda' (10.41 km at 11:21 h and 16:13 h) and 'Santa Lucía' (19 km at 12:11 h and 17:03 h). This Friday will have a total of 88.72 timed km.
    As has been the case in recent editions of the Rally Islas Canarias, Saturday's day will be the longest, with a total of 99.46 km and the longest special of this edition. 'Arucas' will host the starting signal (8.99 km at 9:54 and 14:24), to continue with 'Moya – Valleseco' (27.74 km at 10:42 and 15:12) and close this edition with the 'San Mateo – Valsequillo' section (13 km at 12:05 and 17:05), in its second run as 'Power Stage'.
    In short, the 47th Rally Islas Canarias offers a selective and spectacular route that will delight the teams and the thousands of fans who come to witness this international event.

    First entries.

    I really hope this year we reach about 40 Rally 2 in Gran Canaria.


    https://rallyislascanarias.com/index...to-add-entries

    The Gran Canaria event already has close to a dozen international teams that have completed their registration. Among them is the Finn Mikko Heikkilä, the sensation of the first round of the year in the FIA ​​European Rally Championship.


    The 47 Rally Islas Canarias opened its entries period at the beginning of March and, after a few weeks, there are already several teams that have confirmed their participation. Between them, and in the absence of speeding up this process, there are already close to a dozen international squads that will be in Gran Canaria during the first week of next May.

    Mikko Heikkilä, who was one step away from winning the first round of the 2023 FIA European Rally Championship, will visit the Rally Islas Canarias for the first time. The sensation of that first event of the year has accepted the challenge of the asphalt to continue measuring himself against the rest of the rivals of the continental contest.

    With the Citroën C3 Rally2 that she already used last year, the Italian Rachele Somaschini returns to Gran Canaria to continue enjoying and competing on some stages that she liked. The Hungarian Martin Laszlo is also entered with a Skoda Fabia Rally2 Evo, while the Latvian Martins Sesks confirms the debut in the Canary Islands of the new Skoda Fabia RS Rally2.

    With vehicles from the Rally4 category, the Italians Roberto Daprá (Peugeot 208) and Alessandro Grillo (Renault Clio) are also entered, as well as the German Norman Kreuter (Peugeot 208).

    It expects about 25 abroad crews, 10 national (Spain) crews and 5 regional (Canary Island) with Rally 2 machines.

    Am I wrong with abroad teams, @PLuto?

    We will see who will really start in Canarias. Calendars are very unfriendly this year. Two weeks before is Croatia (so who will do Croatia must almost directly go to Huelva to be in time for boat), just week after Canarias is WRC Portugal (so teams starting in Canarias needs to go directly to Porto and hope that boat will not be delayed to match the scrutineering) and week after is ERC Poland... Very bad for logistics for the team (also dont forget, that some teams are renting cars to different drivers in different championships).
