The annual car rally starts tonight. This is quite a big event in the national rally calendar, because racing along La Palma’s twisty roads is not at all like racing round a track. About 60 cars will drive along the route through the Breñas and Mazo once tonight and three times tomorrow.

Thetimes when the road closes are posted along the route. The race itself starts an hour later and the road reopens when all the cars have gone past. It’s fast, exciting and noisy.
