2018 – SS 5 & 8 Cagnano – Pino – Canari

20/03/2018

Find out the details of one of the seven special stages that will constitute the 2018 CORSICA linea – Tour de Corse. With the collaboration of Dominique Serieys, dive into SS5 & 8.

Dominique Serieys, CORSICA linea – Tour de Corse 2018 Director:

 “After a tricky crossing in the underbrush that includes the Cagnano hairpins the crews face a rapid climb up to the Serra pass (294m) and then a descent punctuated with corners bringing them to Luri. Next comes a much wider road on which the cars reach much higher speeds as they climb up to the spectacular crossing of the Santa-Lucia pass (381m). They then head for the west coast of the Cap via a technical downhill section where a radical change awaits them at the entrance to Pino because the second half of the stage takes place on a very narrow, twisty road that gives an exceptional view of the Agriates on the horizon. After going through the villages of Barrettali and Canari, a final hairpin awaits the drivers before the finish.”
