French term or phrase: spéciale
The narrative French text talks about the 2006 Corsica Rally and says that Sebastien Loeb did not repeat what he did in the 2005 rally.

Example sentence:

Mais Sébastien Loeb n'a pas réédité l'exploit réalisé l'an dernier en s'imposant une nouvelle fois sur la totalité des spéciales.

I would need to know whether "spéciale" is 'special stage' in English? And further, whether "special stage" is the same as a "time trial" or are they different things in a rally?

Explanation:



time trial is "course contre la montre". So a special stage is not necessarily a time trial. Here it's about special stages.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Merci Kévin! Sounds good to me! I was just getting a bit confused about time trials and special stages. I needed to translate this into Finnish, so your answer confirmed that my original translation was fine.
