Sun to Red Sea Rally
5th June 2004
Day 3 - Sunne
to Karlskrona (Sweden)
HURST ON THE MOVE
Today you do it for
real. Out of the hotel and into the first Regularities within
minutes. Through a forest on a military training ground.
From here it's more
scenic motoring through this neat tidy country with lots of
lakes and cute villages down to the port of Karlskrona. Time
for a look around this interesting old town before taking
the night ferry to Gdynia in Poland. A good ferryboat, small
but comfortable cabins and with a decent restaurant and the
opportunity for a bit of a party on board.
Day 3 of the Midnight Sun
to Red Sea Rally, and it was Richard Martin-Hurst in his V8
Capri that started ruffling the feathers of the top drivers,
setting 2nd fastest time on 2 of the days stages.
With the rally completing its Swedish chapter today, the cars
and drivers were on a ferry tonight, crossing the Baltic Sea
bound for Poland. They left behind 3 of Sweden’s best special
stages, with lots of crests and ‘yumps’ for those that dared
Smokin’ Joe McAndrew was launching himself today, turning
on its head the notion that Kiwi’s can’t fly. Completing what
has become a familiar hat-trick, he set fastest times on all
of today’s stages.
