Rally of China : There are no Panda Bears in Longyou
Darn it… was hoping that we could smuggle one of those cute little fellows home… 🙂
Today is the day before the Rally of China. As you may have read, we blogged a preview on the rally here.
So what will be happening in the next few days? As we write this, shakedown is already over. More updates and pictures later as we progress through the event.
This year’s rally will be run over 15 special stages with a combined distance of 229.99km over two days. The rally begins with a 1.82km super special stage for the benefit of spectators after the ceremonial start before proceeding to Leg 1 the following day which will consist of 8 special stages. The third and final day will see competitors battling another 6 special stages.
Stage 1 of the Rally begins at 230pm (China time) tomorrow.
The weather is currently dry, but cool with a lot of haze. It seems that the forecast is that the current conditions will continue throughout the rally period.
We know that currently the stages are in good condition. There is a high percentage of concrete roads that may be slippery at the first pass, as there is a fine dust and sometimes gravel on top so it will be challenging. And an interesting watch.
And so ladies and gents, the stage is all set for the battle. Our drivers are all geared to go. McRae and Hayes, and the brothers Atkinson must be very excited and hopeful as season 2010 ends and so are we as we all pray hard that they do well and claim a podium finish.
We will be back tomorrow. Till then, zài jiàn (that’s goodbye in Mandarin)… 🙂
