Central Europe Rally Special-Newssection (1st round Dakar-Series 2008)

This is the single-news section of the special of the Central Europe Rally 2008, the first round of the new Dakar-Series. To see all news please use the link under the article or navigate with the left main-navigation.

Central Europe Rally: Jonah Street and Team Rally PanAm are 5th overall.

After the first two days of the Central Europe Rally, the team is in Romania, preparing for five more days of intense rally competition. This event is the first of the Dakar Series, attracting most of the world’s best cross-country rally talent.

Jonah Street finished the first three stages in 8th, 3rd, and 9th positions, and now stands in 5th position overall, about 2 minutes out of 2nd place. The wet, muddy and rocky conditions can be very dangerous for large and powerful rally bikes, so Jonah is riding fast but conservatively.

Team manager Charlie Rauseo thinks that things are going according to plan, "Although shorter than the desert rallies we know so well, this event is long enough that Jonah can use a strategy of taking as few risks as possible, especially in the early stages, but keeping within striking distance of the podium."
