FIA World Rally Championship

The Catalunya Rally, the fifth round of the FIA World Rally Championship, ends tomorrow in Lloret de Mar, Spain.

The rally which started on Monday will finish at 15.30 on Wednesday after the drivers have contested 396.01 kms of competitive stages and a total of 1,713.31 kms of Spanish terrain.

The Martini-backed Ford Focus World Rally Car is 40 kgs lighter than when it won in Portugal last month. This is another major step in the car's development programme and will help the team gauge the level of competitiveness on the first proper asphalt rally of the season.

After the rally finishes the drivers will take a few days well earned rest before heading out to Corsica where the three day recce for the Tour de Corse will begin on Saturday 1 May.
