WRC Rally Sardinia 2018: Home to the iconic Micky’s Jump

Home to the iconic Micky’s Jump shot on DJI Inspire 2 and Phantom 4 Pro

In June, DJI and the WRC continued their journey on the rugged and sun-baked gravel tracks of Rally Italia Sardinia which provided a tough challenge with stunning scenery in the north of the Mediterranean holiday island.

Narrow roads surrounded by trees and rocks add to the difficulty of this race, with tracks in some places located on cliff edges, there is no room for mistakes. A sandy and loose gravel surface make controlling drifts even more challenging.

With history dating back 1928, the Sardinia WRC Sardinia was previously located in Sanremo and known as the Rally of the Flowers which would later become an official race of the WRC in 1973.

First And Only Woman To Win A WRC Round

WRC Sardinia is also where Michèle Mouton became the first and only woman to win a WRC round when she triumphed in 1981.

The DJI team on site equipped with the Inspire 2 complete with the Zenmuse X5S and the iconic Phantom 4 Pro were on hand to capture all the stages including the Monte Lerno stage – home to the iconic Micky’s Jump. Cars fly high and long as the road literally drops away beneath them. The steepness of the take-off, combined with the proximity of a sharp left-hander shortly after, make it a must-see. So, if you like your WRC action of a high-flying nature, then it gets no better than here.

DJI not only films WRC races for entertainment but it also provides deep aerial analysis capabilities to the drivers and their teams to help monitor performance and improvements compare to the previous years.

The next WRC race will be in Finland and will take place from July 26th till July 29th 2018.
