End of day two in the Rallye International du Valais sees the Verbier based Annie Spiers Rallye team with Florian Gonon and Sandra in first place by 17.7 seconds with one day left in the rally.
The end of day two at the Rallye International du Valais sees the service park move from Sion to Martigny (CERM) in preparation for the local rally stages. Bruson, Verbier, Sembrancher, Champsec, Saxon, Croix de Coeur, Levron, Col du Lein , La Chaux, Le Chable and La Tzoumaz.
The weather forecast for Saturday’s Rallye is cold -6 to -9 with snow!! which will make the rally over Croix de Coeur a tad interesting. Last year TeleVerbier opened the lifts and charged 10 chf to get you up the hill, also this year La Dahu, one of the sponsors of Florian’s rally car, will be open as well.
Tyres – For ERC rally events they are only allowed to change tyres in the service park (Martigny CERM). So local knowledge and luck will play a huge part in doing well in the Verbier stages.
Now Pirelli appear to know something about tyre choice for Saturday’s rally around the Valais..Or maybe they have been watching the Perfomance Verbier’s Blog??
However Little Ellie had the final say on tyre choice for today stages in the Rallye International du Valais .
The video below shows some of the footage of the Rallye International du Valais 2012
