Their Third Race Win of the Season for Mark Higgins and Darren Garrod
FAW-Volkswagen Spurred On
The race in Sandu was a new addition for CRC this year. The race consisted of a super short run and two special runs. The course was separated into 8 stages with a total length of 455 km and the special stage was 140 km long. It was the only race of the season run on asphalt roads circling around the village. This race held a strong resemblance to Isle of man TT as drivers fired up their engines and zoomed past local houses on narrow yet slippery cement mountain roads. It was also one of the most difficult races of the season since almost half of the cars failed to reach the finishing line.
At the super short race on the first day, the drivers from FAW-Volkswagen chose to hold their cards close to their chests. They got the ball rolling on the second day when the official race started. The foreign expert Mark Higgins took the lead at every stage and finished the race with a 3-minutes-and-59-seconds advantage. The team’s chief driver Chen De’an and the newly crowned individual champion Li Guojin ranked first and second among all Chinese drivers.
