CHRIS ATKINSON WINS 2015 LONGYOU RALLY IN GOLF SCRC 

Chris Atkinson has won the Longyou Rally, the latest round of the Chinese Rally Championship.  Atkinson has now won four of the five rounds this year in the Prodrive-developed and run Golf SCRC..

 

Chen Dean took fifth place and Li ninth.  The result means that FAW-VW has now taken the lead in the coveted manufacturers’ championship by four points over Subaru.  

 

The Longyou Rally was the scene of the VW Golf SCRC’s debut win last year.  This year it saw some of the worst conditions possible for this mixed gravel and concrete event. 

 

Atkinson suffered a puncture on the final day, but still won the event by nearly two minutes from Mark Higgins in the Subaru and Alistair McRae in the Mitsubishi.

 

The penultimate round takes place in two weeks’ time at WuYi.
