An easyish opening day with 3 regularities and two tests. The first test being on the Altenmarkt ice circuit.
A steady and conservative day by ourselves see us starting 17th overall and 3rd in class. The roads are almost snow free here in Ljubljana but let’s see what it looks like tomorrow for the first of two night sections.
The starting list for tomorrow was based on the results at lunchtime.
We are in fact 10th overall going into day 2.
Route plotted, well, in draft form, I’ll go over it again to detail some awkward stuff.
An interesting route leaving Berchtesgaden for the Ice Racing track at Altenmarkt on the way to Ljubljana for two nights and one night loop. Then to Leoben in Austria for the next Evening. Two nights in Linz, Austria and another night section in southern Czech before the finish in Salzburg. 8 legs of snow and ice!
It’s going to be fun and perhaps very challenging conditions considering the amount of snow that’s fallen in this area over the last fortnight.. can’t wait!
On our way to scruitineering of the 2018 Rally of the Tests in Harrogate.
It’s Grim opp North!
