Midnight Sun to Red Sea Rally

16th June 2002

Day 14 - Antalya to Adana (Turkey)

CALLINAN STORMS THE DAY - BELLM OUT WITH A “BUCKET OF BOLTS"

We follow the coast road along the Mediterranean and then up into the hills before returning to the coast and the turquoise sea with lots of opportunities for coffee stops and even lunch at one of the many waterside cafes - the fresh grilled fish is to die for.

The last 140 kms is a fast blast on the motorway into our overnight stop. 

Keith and Mary-Ann Callinan in their magnificent bellowing Australian V8 Monaro charged through today’s two tarmac stages to post two stunning stage wins. Keith, beaming with a wall-to-wall smile, said, “It was beaut day, we finally got the Monaro going properly after a list of troubles and they were my sort stages. The best rallying day I’ve ever had – great stages and some of the best roads and scenery.”

Callinan’s winning times over both narrow twisty stages were even more amazing, he passed two cars in the first stage and one in the second; little wonder the beaming wide smile.

Ray Bellm, who had been working his way back onto the leader board retired immediately after setting second fastest time on the second stage with his Porsche 911 engine “sounding like a tin bucket full of bolts.”
