Woody Woodpecker Gets Around

Did anyone else know that Woody Woodpecker is the mascot of PortAventura? 

PortAventura is a theme park in the resort of Salou, Tarragona, Catalonia, Spain, on the Costa Daurada ("Golden Coast"), about an hour south of Barcelona.

I found this comment below at

"Welcome to PortAventura! Can I give you a hug? Hug me!”

Not the most conventional welcome to a rally service area, but then again most service areas aren’t located in a theme park…

"I’m really not sure about the woodpecker…”

Sébastien Loeb voices what everyone else is thinking about Woody Woodpecker, the very irritating bright blue bird, mascot of PortAventura and unfortunately our host for the event. Among the more welcome celebrity spots over the Rallye de España weekend are Ari Vatanen, former world rally champion and would-be FIA president, and former rally-winner Michèle Mouton, arguably the most successful woman in motorsport.

Woody Woodpecker sure gets around!
