We will be over that weekend and are interested in the stages around pollensa on Saturday 14th

I have seen the maps and road book on their website but am still not really sure where best to watch and at what times the cars will pass by

We saw this rally a few years ago ..... Watched from the roundabout by the Argentine restaurant ...... But to be honest we were just lucky to be in the right place at the right time .... I would like to be a bit better prepared this time

Any help gratefully received

It is frustrating! I have been tracking updates on both their official site and others that pop up, seemingly with more information than the official site ~ so never sure if its actually factual or wishful thinking! Have to admit I keep getting side tracked by the various videos shown and being amazed at the sliding skills around the hairpin bends! I know where I WOULDNT like to stand!

You may find this link a bit helpful re times and places drivers are given for one of the routes by Pollensa;

I see they have changed the route this year, it doesn't look like they are including Formentor this time or am i missing something .

If I remember rightly, they only seem to do the Puerto Pollensa/Formentor route every other year.

Mag, this is the official two routes and times for the Saturday, although directions are in Spanish, you can see the times on the left, and the main areas in bold, along with drivers directions re roundabouts and turnings!

Every year we say the same thing Mark. Must forgo a longer summer break for a long May weekend break!

Ok so if I read this correctly the first group leave pollensa for lluc at 9:40 and then go on to the caves then return to pollensa at 11:25

another group then leave from Pollensa at 11:30 and repeat the rout arriving back at pollensa at 12:40

So my question is ..... Do they park up anywhere in pollensa - ie is there a viewing opportunity where they are static?

If we stand at the roundabout near the argentine restaurant will we see them from 9:40
Can someone in the know please help
