L：437.89km S：96.71km TOTAL：534.60km
A COURSE JUST LIKE A DREAM!
The rally now heads westward. The valleys and rivers are beautiful enough to make you rub your eyes and wonder if this is really Mongolia as the Taiga or pine tree forest region seems to flow past. Today’s long liason and short SS of not quite 100 kilometers take us to the bivouac of Khar Nuur, the current highlight of the course. The top time is held by Toyota Tacoma #107 which still leads over the Can-am group that has shown nearly overwhelming performance since the first day of the rally. However, the Can-am group #108, #105 are in first and second place overall. Boldbaatar who is driver #105, has continually entered this race since 17 years of age, He had a mere 30 second time gap at the SS finish in this 2 day battle. Weather conditions are unstable but the beauty of Khar Nuur off in the distance is something out of this world.
「REALLY ENJOYABLE VIEWS, FORESTS AND LAKES, AND AN UNEXPECTED SWEDISH-TYPE MONGOLIA!」
Though still only the initial phase of the rally, this is a tour route like none ever seen before including valleys covered by beautiful forests of pine trees and magnificent lakes. This is a mostly paved route extending straight through the heart of Siberia. You might almost think of it as a liason route made for enjoying the scenery. The SS or special stage prepared for ETAP-2 is not very long. After next finally reaching beautiful Khar Nuur, the scenery shifts to a lakeside bivouac at the lake reflecting a spectacular starry sky.
