The base remains in Olbia, with the single service park in the town's port, but organisers have maintained their policy of ringing the changes with 29 per cent of the stages new and some competitive distance used in the opposite direction to previous years. The exclusive coastal resort of Porto Cervo again hosts both the start and finish ceremonies. Much of the new distance is covered on the opening day which nevertheless returns to traditional territory south of Olbia in the Nuoro region. The second leg is similar to last year, covering more inland tests in Gallura and including the spectacular Monte Lerno jump. The final day moves away from Tempio Pausania and Arzachena for tests south of Olbia before a short, final stage just south of Porto Cervo in the famous Cala di Volpe gulf. Drivers tackle 17 stages covering 344.73km in a route of 1040.35km. <pre> RALLY D'ITALIA SARDEGNA ROUND 6 FIA WORLD RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP 15 - 18 May 2008
