The Campeonato de España de Rallyes Todo Terreno Loterías returns to Aragon to celebrate the fifth race of the championship, the second consecutive race in Aragonese lands after the last Baja Aragón held in Teruel.

On September 1 and 2, the Cierzo Ejercito de Tierra Rally returns to celebrate its fifth edition between the localities of Zuera, San Mateo de Gállego, Ontinar de Salz and the Campo de Maniobras de San Gregorio.

The championship reaches its equator with the Portuguese José Henrique Dinis leading the classification, followed by scarcely two points by the Spanish Santiago Carnicer, who won in the Lower Aragon, leaving the championships very tight.

Thus, on Thursday 31 will be arriving the first participants to the Zuera International Circuit, where will be established the assistance park of the test together with the race office, to begin with the first administrative checks.

On Friday morning, participants who so wish will have the possibility to perform a test shakedown in the vicinity of the circuit itself while the rest of the participants are done with the relevant checks.

Friday afternoon, we'll have the first of the four specials. A prelude stage of about 18 km with departure at Ontinar de Salz and arrival at San Mateo de Gállego, which will determine the order of departure on Saturday.

After the prologue stage, the vehicles will head to the podium ceremony that, for the first time, will take place in the Plaza del Pilar of Zaragoza, which will bring the spirit of the big downs again to the Aragonese capital.

On Saturday, at the first hour, we will move to the second special in the Camp de Maniobras of San Gregorio. The section, which will be held behind closed doors inside the military facilities, will have a tour of 153 km of pure navigation, possibly the most complex special of the whole championship.

In this part, the co-pilots will have to exert themselves to the maximum, making prudence their best ally to get to the end of the special in the best conditions.

Once the second special is over, the teams will be reunited in the assistance park located on the Zuera International Circuit to move on to the second tour of the day, this time in open field, which will go through the low mountain of Zuera in two passes of 104 km each, with a course much faster than the previous of San Gregorio.

Without a doubt, the Zaragoza test can be the turning point in the ranking, where it is not likely to be who runs the most but who makes the fewest mistakes.
