A well organised event
This year's edition of Rally d'Italia Sardegna has the best logistics among the sixteen rounds of the FIA 2006 World Rally Championship.
Thanks to the strategic location of the Service Park at Porto Cocciani – Cala Saccaia, the Italian round of
the World Rally Championship does defy all competition with the other rounds of the Championship.
Olbia the centre of gravity of the race is its soul thanks to the hotel facilities and the others infrastructures like the “Olbia-Costa Smeralda” International Airport and the tourist harbor “Isola Bianca”. Less than two months before the start of the rally Olbia is ready to receive the teams, the staffs and the fans coming from all over the world.
In the center of Olbia are located the Rally Headquarter and the Media Center – Race Direction, Press Room, Manufacturers Room, Radios, FIA and ACI (Automobile Club Italy) / CSAI (Italian Automobile Sporting Commission) offices – and as of this year also the Accreditation Centre. The building hosting these facilities is, as in the past editions, the “Museum of the Sea” on the Peddone islet. At the airport there will be a Reception Point for hosts, journalists and tourists.
Tourists and rally fans will be able to visit the Service Park at Porto Cocciani-Cala Saccaia free of charge and with the best safety conditions. The Rally d'Italia Sardegna is the biggest Service Park of the World Rally Championship with 122.000 square meters surface.
The Headquarter is connected to the Service Park by a clearway of only four kilometers, while the Headquarter is 4 kilometers away from the airport and 1 kilometer away from the harbor.
In order to make the displacement of the people following the rally easier all the major routes will be marked by special road signs and colored standards. The Service Park will be connected to the Rally Headquarter by dedicated shuttles.
