The field of 33 vehicles continues it’s race across Syberia, having dodged animals and crossed rivers on their way to today’s check point in Omsk. The rally leader continues to be Armin Schwarz and Hilger Oliver in a Porsche Cayenne.
The above photo shows Canadians Kees Neirop and Lawrence Yap navigating the river on day 2. Fortunately, they seem to have made it across, which not all teams can say. There were several vehicle failures in the river, ranging from electrical problems to a blown engine.
Results seem to be a bit spotty coming out of Syberia, but scoring from August 4th shows Neirop and Yap sitting in 16th position. Nicely done so far guys.
