    Baltic Rally News

    Looked at the entrylist of Helix rally estonia, and saw a lot of GAZ 51. Turned out to be older russian trucks buildt into rallycars.

    looked like a fun class to watch. What are tech specs on these?

    also a couple of proto cars, I am guessing from Dytko. How far off the Rhabe they been in the past?

    Only Dytko is Aus`s Polo, others are locally-built, Fiestas with an R5-like suspension. All based on Evo`s though. Pretty fast cars, but still new and with mistakes, which caught out several (+ manmade jumps probably had their part in it). Kruuda was the fastest non-WRC on SS1, then sadly retired for example...

    Gaz trucks are with a min. weight 2 tons, allowed engines only from the manuf., R6 -4000cm3 or V8 -4600cm3 (some modifications allowed, gearbox free, original brake system, original front axle, etc.

    Google translate it, if more interested.

    Most of the stages were live last year: https://saaremaarally.eu/en/spectators/

    Last round of Estonian rally season, too bad it coincides with ERC in Liepaja, but still many fast competitiors with great national cars like M3`s, Gaz trucks (i think its a record for them?) etc. Some who have the chance, are planning to do both ( I heard that Gorban has one Mini in Latvia waiting for Sunday). Gross now has a Fiesta WRC mk8, could be Ostberg`s car, dont know yet.
