Although the rally is again based in Ajaccio and held over stages on the west of the island, organisers have introduced major changes for 2007 to increase the difficulty and pressure. Much of the opening two legs are new, with one of Saturday's tests reappearing for the first time since 1996. Almost 60 per cent of the stages are new or have not been used in this format for four years. The first two legs will also contain two identical loops of three tests rather than the traditional two. Sunday's final leg will be identical to last year. The route also heads further south than in previous years, reaching down to Sarthne. The three legs are all of similar distance and drivers face 16 stages covering 359.32km in a route of 1117.20km.
