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.
The road will be shut at 9 pm Friday and 10:26, 13:57 and 17:27. The race itself starts an hour later and the road reopens when all the cars have gone past. It’s fast, exciting and noisy.
