The third stage of both loops is "Vinski Vrh - Duga Resa" which is the shortest stage of the rally with 8,78 Km. "Pećurkovo Brdo - Mrežnički Novaki" will be held on Saturday instead of Friday and is the concluding stage of the morning and the evening.

Sunday includes two repeated stages and less than 55 Km. "Trakošćan - Vrbno" will run at the same order as in 2023 which means that it will be first and the third stage of the day.
