SS7-Taklimakan Rally 2018
Taklimakan Rally Stage 7: Billowing Sand and Heat Wave
[Beijing] After the second rest day, Stage 7 was ready to rumble on June 11th. The route covered 103km and was relatively easier compared to previous stages. After the 40-km mark, the racers entered the scenic canyons which offered the most beautiful sights of this year’s rally. Despite the landscaped vistas and short distances, participants continued to roast in the furnace as temperatures remained high. Our drivers could not relish in the breathtaking scenery but fully concentrate on the race.
After emerging tops in the previous stages, Zhengzhou Nissan’s Team Navara came in first again in SS5 held on June 8th. They performed consistently well today, still leading the T1 group overall.
