JRC A FULL 2016
Japanese Rally Championship Round 3: Wakasa Rally 2016.
24 May, 2016
Continued from previous round, crew Nutahara-Sato (Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X) holds on to 2nd place in class JN6! And team Kamada-Ichino (Subaru WRX STI), despite suffering huge time loss from brake trouble on day 1, went full-speed on day 2, scoring top time in 4 special stages. Only 1.2 seconds behind number 3, they ended in 4th place.
In JN5 class team Shinkai-Urushido’s Fiat Abarth 500 Rally R3T was suddenly struck with engine trouble in SS1, forcing them to patience while they drove to the end of SS4 in a very weak machine. Coming back after repairs with an astounding speed that made top time in 8 special stages, they greatly excited the crowd, even with 6th place.
Team Koizumi-Koizumi (Nissan March Nismo S) came 5th in class JN1. As they achieved the 3rd time in SS13, we expect more excitement to come.
The next round is the ‘Ganbaro! Fukushima MSCC Rally 2016’
