Due to the storms and heavy showers that have hit the Zhongwei region during Saturday evening, the Silk Way Rally’s Race Directors have been forced to announce the cancellation of the 14th Special Stage, intended to be run this Saturday morning between Zhongwei and Xi’an. A decision approved of by all the competitors.
This Saturday morning all the competitors in the race, will therefore leave in liaison, following the assistance route, in order of the overall rankings, for the parc ferme in Xi’an, so as to be able to take part in the finish celebrations and the final podium, which will be held as initially planned.
As the Sporting Stewards have decided to cancel SS14, the results are those of the end of the 13th stage of 21 July 2017.
Cyril Despres and David Castera (Peugeot 3008DKR n°106) in the cars and Dmitry Sotnikov, Ruslan Akhmadeev and Ilnur Mustafin (Kamaz-Master n°303) in the truck class will therefore simply have to reach the parc ferme in Xi’an to be officially declared winners of the 2017 edition of the Silk Way Rally in their respective categories.
