The drivers will do three laps of the same loop as in 2011, one more than last year, around the Palais des Sports in Mulhouse. This super special stage will provide a thrilling show for the thousands of spectators who will be able to appreciate the talent of the survivors from this testing day.
The opinion of Dominique Serieys, Rally France-Alsace’s General Manager:
- Description: « It is a fast layout, interspersed with chicanes. It is worth mentioning that a third lap has been added, compared to 2011; this stage being the last one of a particularly intense day in the Haut-Rhin. »
- Public Areas (ZP): « Like Strasbourg’s stage, Mulhouse offers a wide choice of very diverse Public Areas. My favorites are the ZP3 and ZP4 which are respectively located just after the starting line and next to the chicane. I also have a preference for the ZP6 which is just facing the long left-turn on the East side, and the ZP8 at the end of the straight before a left direction change. »
