Competitor Update – 28 September 2017

If you weren’t in Hokkaido, you missed all the fun and drama! As is often the case, Rally Hokkaido is one of those rallies that can bite you back.And seriously. Throw in a rampant typhoon or two, and you have the makings of an interesting weekend. Lots of rain, but fortunately not too much wind to affect the rally. Or flights out of Obihiro.

And of course, the APRC Drivers Championship will now be decided in India!
