Corsica in motorhome
France's WRC round was held on the stunning island of Corsica from 1973 to 2008.
Never-ending sequences of turns earned the event the nickname "The Rally of 10,000 Corners".
After a year's absence due to rotation, the rally moved to the Alsace region of the French mainland in 2010, before returning to Corsica in 2015.
Tight and twisty mountain roads are often bordered on one side by a rock face and on the other by a steep drop into the sea. Rough and abrasive asphalt places high demands on tyres. Many crews have not previously tackled the rally so must write all-new pace notes. Narrow roads mean errors can be punished heavily.
Be part of this fantastic event aboard one of our motorhomes departing from Ajaccio.
Nearly two million people visit Corsica each year, drawn by the mild climate and by some of the most diverse landscapes in all Europe. Nowhere in the Mediterranean has beaches finer than the island's perfect half-moon bays of white sand and transparent water, or seascapes more inspiring than the red porphyry Calanches of the west coast.
Even though the annual visitor influx now exceeds the island's population seven or eight times over, tourism hasn't spoilt the place: there are a few resorts, but overdevelopment is rare and high-rise blocks are confined to the main towns.
Sandy beaches and rocky coves punctuate the west coast all the way down to Ajaccio, Napoléon's birthplace and the island's capital, where pavement cafés and palm-lined boulevards are thronged with tourists in summer.
There is no better way to discover this diverse Corsica, also called the Island of Beauty, than in an Avis Car-Away Motorhome.
