2018 – SS  7 & 10 Novella

2018 – SS 7 & 10 Novella

26/03/2018

We unveil 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 SS7 & 10.

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

“The drivers start near the Pietra Monetta Auberge on a very narrow twisty road in the middle of the ‘maquis’; they then have to cope with several difficult corners to reach the Novella village that’s just as narrow and tricky to cross. The passages to the picturesque train station of Novella and the La Croix pass give spectators a unique view on both sides of the pass. A narrow winding downhill road with a worn surface brings the crews to the finishing line in the old part of Balanine. Here the drivers will have to watch out for punctures if they cut the corners too sharply. SS 7 will be shown live on a French TV channel as well as on several foreign ones.”
