Once again, Fafe Rally Sprint serves as a spectacular warm-up/shakedown session, ahead of next weeks Rally de Portugal, round four of the World Rally Championship.
First run through the 6.34 kilometer stage is behind us, and it was Dani Sordo with the best time and superbly executed jump.
With huge number of spectators and live TV coverage, this short rally sprint is showing, once again, that rally is still immensely popular and that live bloody TV is the way to go! In case anyone needs reminding, or refuses to admit.
Even Jean Todt was seen waving at the crowd at Fafe. Hopefully, he was impressed with what he saw. Impressed enough to keep pushing the sport forward.
Second run is about to start, and you can catch it all live on THIS LINK – mind you, it gets a bit iffy at times, probably due to high volume of traffic to the site/stream.
