China Rally 2008By Bruce • Nov 23rd, 2008 • Category: Podcast, Season 2008
It might have been a ‘dead rubber’, but China Rally was a classic. Cody Crocker arrived with the 2008 APRC title in the bag, but that didn’t mean he wasn’t going to fight for his third Chinese victory in a row.
But Hiroshi Yanagisawa, who has turned his season around since Rally Whangarei, wasn’t going to allow Crocker to have things his own way. Yanagisawa took Crocker head-on and, for the bulk of the event, looked to be heading for his first APRC victory. But a small mistake on the final stage cost him dearly, Crocker engineering a remarkable comeback on day two to win by just 1.2 seconds.
In our final podcast of 2008, we catch up with all the action from China Rally, and look back at some of the audio highlights (and lowlights) of the season.
