Italy is not just famous for the trademark food-pie, Pizza, but also for heritage of its motorsport and fan-base. Just before the nearing of the mid-season break, its time for some Italian narrow sandy, gravel roads high speed/adrenaline rush of two days of action filled weekend at the Sardinian island, Italy.
The pre-event practice and Shakedown that went down today in good flying colours witnessed the pace of the last event winner, Jari-Matti Latvala going fastest of the 14 WRC cars and chose [in an unique way the event organisers offered] to start 13th in the opening stage, early morning tomorrow. The two day affair of the gravel event has a total of 16 stages equally distributed with 8 stages each per day.
Here is the below onboard video of Mikko Hirvonen doing the shakedown stage. Enjoy & see you tomorrow for more report on the happening of the day's action. Sit tight and enjoy the video.
