There are few changes from Jordan's 2008 WRC debut, with the service park based at the Dead Sea. Most stages are fully or partially below sea level west of the capital city of Amman, although new roads north of the city will be used on the opening morning after the start ceremony amid the ruins of the stunning former Roman city of Jerash. They journey through historical and biblical sites around the Jordan Valley and Rumman forests, including the Baptism Site, where Jesus was baptised in the Jordan River, and Mount Nebo, where Moses looked over the Promised Land before he died and was buried there. All but one of the 11 different stages will be used twice and some sections of road will be used four times. The second leg contains the marathon 41.45km Jordan River test, a twisty stretch of road which runs north to south through 'no man's land' alongside the Jordan - Palestine border. Drivers tackle 21 stages covering 339.48km in a route of 911.78km.
