|10th Albania Rally TICKER: Long day, long night, nice second stage Tuesday.|
Actually at 23:00 CET the most participants arrived in the camp - but some are still on their way... The good news: Tomorrow (Tuesday) the day will be shorter, participants will drive a round course in the near of the city Peshkopi.
The roadbooks will be given at 9:00 CET, the official briefing will be at 10:00 CET. At 11:00 the first bikes will start in the stage, the cars will follow at 12:30 - the competitors have to handle two stages with 100 kms and 23 kms timed section, 190 kms overall including liaisons.
"It was tough but funny today," said the former "Breslau-Rally" winner Henrik Strasser from Germany. "In the first part there were some technical passages, very narrow for the cars, we had to steer heavily all the time. Then in the second stage it was really great, we found the perfect speed for our car, were drifting through the track - we liked it!"
Because the day was also late for the press, we will close the reports for today and will be back tomorrow - stay tuned for the results and full stories!
