Last Saturday we got together for something we had quite a long time to do. Rally! It's been very popular here in the past, surely because it offers spectacular competition, unpredictable results and a lot of fun. But the difficulty to set up and the fact that, the room of the club is mostly taken from the 4lane circuit track, kept us from organizing rallies more often. Still, we managed to make some room using part of the yard as a pit area, and we were ready to go.
We would use 2 lanes of the circuit as SS1 and SS2, and then we had 2 more stages.
Stages 1 and 2 on the Ninco track:


Front part of stage3:


And rear part of stage3:


And stage4:


We would race 2wd, 4wd, stock and modified rally cars from all eras.
We would run each of the 4 stages twice, so we have an 8 stage rally event here!
Below are all entries in the parc ferme area:

On the left are the stock 2wd cars, in the middle the stock 4wd and on the right are all modifieds (2wd and 4wd)

Our team had only time to prepare some modified cars, we had no stock cars readily available.
Here they are:

Cars, as seen above, finished in first, second, fifth and third place overall.

For the first 2 stages we would run the outer lanes of our Ninco 4lane track, for 5 laps. Then we would run 5 laps on ss3, (using a crossover piece to run it on both lanes) and then 10 laps on the smaller ss4 (again using a crossover).

Start of SS1 and SS2 for my Xsara and Zafeiris' 207 S2000:

Some more photos of the event.

Top 4wd entries awaiting for a circuit duel:

My Xsara pro and Petros' spirit 205

A Peugeot 307 WRC by Ninco:


A Ninco Porsche 911 took the win in stock 2wd:


Another stock Ninco 911:


Best looking car in my opinion:

George's Spirit 2002, box stock, but great result, second in stock 2wd!

A close battle was developed, for 4wd overall win, one that I lost only for 8 secs.
My Xsara would finish second in 4wd:


Winning stock 4wd, this Subaru:


Lancia 037 on the mud:


Escort Cosworth:


...and Escort MkII:


Always a good choice for 4wd:

The Avant Slot 207 S2000.

On two weeks time we will race again on these stages. Hopefully more people will attend. Meanwhille, there's another stage under construction and thoughts for a circuit special stage using all 4 lanes of our track simultaneously. Stay tuned!!!
