Silk Way Rally 2018, First Edition, Stage 5: Astrakhan to Volgograd .

 

  • MINI John Cooper Works Rally cars finish one-two in Stage 5 of Silk Way Rally (First Edition).
  • Joan ‘Nani’ Roma and co-driver Alex Haro in a MINI John Cooper Works Rally win Stage 5 of Silk Way Rally in Russia.
  • MINI crew of Yazeed Al Rajhi and co-driver Timo Gottschalk retain lead of 2018 Silk Way Rally (First Edition) with second place in Stage 5.

 

Munich. MINI Motorsport leads the 2018 Silk Way Rally (First Edition) for the second day in succession. Yazeed Al Rajhi (KSA) and co-driver Timo Gottschalk (GER) in a MINI John Cooper Works Rally, finished today’s Stage 5 in second place and extended their overall time advantage.

 

The winner of Stage 5 – the longest stage of seven at 552.71km total distance – was the MINI Family crew of Joan ‘Nani’ Roma (ESP) and co-driver Alex Haro (ESP), also in a MINI John Cooper Works Rally. Today’s result is quite special for Roma after retiring from Stage 1 with injury. Despite receiving a severe time penalty, Roma and Haro’s spirits were not dampened and they have pushed hard to achieve top five results and move up the leader board to 19th overall.

 

Roma: “The first kilometres were quite tricky and bumpy with a lot of water everywhere. I followed a buggy for some distance but eventually passed and then caught and passed Yazeed. For the next 150-200 kilometres we led the route, which was quite nice and Alex was doing a good job. It’s good today to see the two MINI John Cooper Works Rally in front. I hope that Yazeed wins the race.”

 

The next stage of the 2018 Silk Way Rally (First Edition) race is Stage 6, Volgograd to Lipetsk – a total distance of 776.78km, of which are 317.15km are the Special Stage section.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
