Stage 7 & 8 of the FIA Asia-Pacific Championship (Malaysian Rally) – Partial Results (Updated)

Stage 7 & 8  done, with day 1 of the rally coming to an end. The competition is stiff with McRae, Taguchi, Atkinson and Gill pushing the limits in each stage of the race, putting them in the top 4 spots in each stage.

McRae from the Proton R3 Malaysia Rally Team leads the pack with a total time of 2:04:16.9 while Taguchi from MRF Tyres chasing for the top spot at 2:04:44.1. Gill from MRF Tyres is a minute and 26 secs behind his team mate at 2:05:43.1

Atkinson from the Proton R3 Malaysian Rally Team is at the 4th spot in the overall position now, making a quick leap from Stage 1 of the race when he suffered from electrical failures after a jump. With a total time of 2:22.42.2, he is 18 minutes behind Gill.

Here’s the partial results for stage 7 & 8 race at the Tai Tak Estate:

With only 6 teams in the Stage 8 results, it makes us wonder if any other teams have retired from the race. Missing in the list are:

Yuya Sumiyama & Naoki Kase – Cusco Racing
Tomohide Hasegawa & Nobuyoshi Hara – Hasepro World Rally Team
Karamjit Singh & Jagdev Singh – GSR Penzoil Racing Team – Officially retired
Hiroshi Yanagisawa & Yoshimasa Nakahara – Cusco Racing – Officially retired

We are waiting for the official release to be out and will update everyone once we have it.
