The route is identical to 2008, with the service park based at Salou's PortAventura theme park, an hour's drive from Barcelona, and the stages spanning the Tarragona region. Following Thursday evening's start ceremony on the seafront, each day comprises two passes over an identical loop of three stages. Friday's opening leg is the longest of the rally with 131.76km of competition, much of it north-east of Salou. Saturday's second day to the north-west includes the monster 38.27km El Priorat - La Ribera d'Ebre test, which opens each loop and is the longest of the event. The final leg journeys west of Salou but stays close to the town, before the finish there at 15.07. The 18 stages cover 353.62km in a route of 1299.13km. <pre> RALLY DE ESPANA ROUND 11 FIA WORLD RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP 1 - 4 October 2009
