Question





Rally Rotorua is the third round of the APRC which is in New Zealand, and is being held on the 9-10th of July

Leading in the Championship is Team MRF Tyres driver and last years APRC Champion Armin Kremer driving a MItsubishi LAncer EVO 8, second is Karamjit Singh who has won the APRC CHampionship twice and lost last year by just one point driving a Proton Pert, third is Geof Argyle in another Mitsubishi Lancer EVO 8 sponsored by Team Toal Lubricants, he won the 2nd round of the APRC last month, that was Rally New Caledonia, there is also the second driver from Team MRF also in a EVO 8 Katsuhiko Taguchi, there is Chris Atkinson driving a Suzuki Ignis Super 1600 in the Group A 6 class, with him his teammate Vesa Mikola in another Ignis

the entry list is available on http://www.rallyrotorua.co.nz/EntryList.pdf

this will be a very interesting rally as the karamjit singh is only 2 points behind armin kremer, and to see if argyle can repeat his win from new caledonia

the rally was won by 2 time APRC champion Karamjit SIngh in his Proton Pert taking 14 points followed by Armin Kremer in second place taking 13 points including SupeRally points which now cuts down his championship lead to just 1 point, the second MRF Team driver took third place with 9 points and is now third in the championship, both drove Mitsubish Lancer EVO 8's
Nico Caldarola took 4th place in the registered APRC drivers in his Subaru Impreza followed by New Calodonia's winner Geof Argyle, Christopher Atkinson brought his Suzuki Ignis in 6th while his teammate Vesa Mikkola retired after he hit a big rock and damaged his suspension.
Brian Green and Dermott Malley were the last of the 2 APRC registered drivers who finished in 7th and 8th respectively.
