Antalya to Adana (Turkey)
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

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.” more...
