Poland is not only the second-oldest and second-fastest event on the World Rally Championship (WRC) calendar in 2015, but also an emotional homecoming for Pirelli’s star World Rally Championship contender Robert Kubica, driving a privately-run Ford Fiesta RS WRC on the Italian tyres this year.
The route of Rally Poland has been extensively reworked: only the superspecial stage in Mikolajki remains entirely unaltered compared to 2014. However, the fast and flowing nature of the gravel roads, with average speeds close to those of Rally Finland, remain. Adding to the challenge are high summertime temperatures, which only increase the demands on the tyres during round seven of the World Rally Championship.
The longest stage is 39 kilometres, with the shortest being 2.5 kilometres. Following the superspecial stage in the evening of Thursday 2 July, the rally concludes at lunchtime on Sunday 5 July in Mikolajki, with the entire event being run within the Masurian Lakes region this year.
