It will be on Thursday starting at 8:30 p.m. from the Santa Catalina Park in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, when the flag will be given to the first of the teams that will take the start. But before this happens, drivers and co-drivers have to recognize the seven special stages, which they´ll have to march on double pass during the legs of Friday and Saturday.

We can´t forget Ingenio and Telde, which will host as headquarters the free practice, qualifying stage and the shakedown of Thursday, May 3.
