The base remains in Olbia with a single service park in the town's port. The route is similar to 2008 although the second day includes two new stages, one of which traces the route of a disused railway line, and the final leg includes a test not used since 2006. Thursday's ceremonial start switches to the centre of Olbia, with the opening day's action south of the town in the Olbia - Tempio province. The second leg moves further inland to the Sassari region and includes the spectacular jumps in the Monte Lerno stage. The final day journeys to the north of the Olbia - Tempio province, and also includes a test in the extreme north of the island, close to the stunning Costa Smeralda coastline. The exclusive resort of Porto Cervo hosts the finish after 17 stages, covering 347.12km in a route of 1263.20km. <pre> RALLY D'ITALIA SARDEGNA ROUND 6 FIA WORLD RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP 21 - 24 May 2009
