4th place in shortened stage 3:
The weather conditions took over the leadership in the early morning of the day and the organiser had to postpone the start for safety reasons. The track was in quiet bad conditions due some heavy rain over the night. So the first part of the stage „Volgograd – Elista“ was cancelled and the crews had to race only 275 kms stage. The HS RallyeTeam with Matthias Kahle and Dr. Thomas Schünemann started in 8th position and claimed in CP 1 the 3rd place just behind Lavieille and Szalay. The driving in the particularly wet sand was not that easy, but the crew did a great job and exited the terrain without any hard problem. After all Matthias and Thomas took the 4th place in the day result and claimed the 5th position overall, only 26 Seconds behind the podium. In this 26 seconds also Boris Gadasin and Miroslav Zlapetal are locking forward for the upcoming day with stunning 506 kms of racing in Russia.
