Hellas Rally Raid 2022 - Day 2
Starting point for the second day of the Hellas Rally Raid was the beautiful village of Clementi. Located on the green slopes of Mount Ziria at an altitude of 960 meters. Participants raced across 340 km, of today’s Special Stage, passing near the beautiful lake Dassiou. The beautiful sunny weather gave a magical image to the vast spruce forest.
While trying to get used to the alpine landscape and the rocky paths, riders today had to deal with two more challenges, high temperatures and steep descents. Frenchman Jagu Julien, remained on top at the end of the day in the moto category. Hugues Lacam and his navigator Max Delfino reversed the situation in the SSV class and took the lead.
Tomorrow’s special stage has been decided from the organizers to be canceled due to safety reasons, so all participants will be able to rest and enjoy the sun and sea at beautiful Loutraki. But it won’t be all just fun as the participants must prepare, concentrate and plan their route for the marathon stage, the longest rally stage in any European endurance Rally.
