The Superspecial stage, which opened the International Baja “Northern Forest 2008”, successfully finished. Thirty-seven crews participated in this stage (the others will join them tomorrow, but with the worst qualification results and with the appropriate positions in the overall standings). Those 37 crews made head-to-head runs over the distance of 2.7 km with narrow curves, jumps and crossings at different levels.

The cars of participants of the International Baja “Northern Forest 2008”, the 1st round of the Russian Rally-Raid Championship 2008, left the start point today at 11.00 o’clock in the morning. This official ceremony was held in the historical center of Saint-Petersburg, near the first house of Peter the Great. Weather was not so friendly today, a storm warning was forecast, and spectators were scared by strong eddy wind and wet snow. But can this weather frighten the off-road professionals? Of course not! There is a belief that start in a bad weather is a good sign for future success!
