The 2015 China Rally Championship (CRC) season kicked off in Guiyang, Hunan province with the FAW Volkswagen team, which is technically supported by Motul, achieving great results over the two-day event.
Driving a Prodrive built Golf MK7, Aussie driver ‘Atko’ Atkinson clocked the winning time of 1:36:11.1, while Chinese driver Chen De An and Wang Yang finished third. The first of the two stages was particularly tough because of the unbearably hot weather and the state of the roads taken by the contenders. Atkinson, however, used his racing experience to overcome the challenges enabling him to dominate the race.
The rigorous second stage took place in the mountains, which saw drivers adopt a conservative strategy to finish the punishing stage. Only 38 out of the 78 entries at the start managed to finish the stage. Atkinson kept contenders at bay to win the mountain stage of the rally. Chinese driver Chen De An and team-mate Wang Yang finished third among the local teams, allowing FAW Volkswagen to win in the Teams and Manufacturers’ standings of the event and get ahead in the Teams championship.
