IRC - 2012 : Barum Czech Rally [Day 1]

Barum Czech Rally - Day 1 kicked off with a superb SSS with just a little over 9kms of stage. The stage was reportedly wet, but no rains prevalent during the course of the rally, however a spectator was found to be indisciplined which stalled the stage for a few minutes until organisers intervened.

The Shakedown stage held yesterday was pretty action packed too with almost the entire competition at atmost attack regardless of the group or class of the cars and their teams.

A whopping 99 cars took start for the Leg 1 of the rally with a minute gap between each starting car, in reverse order though.
