“Today’s stage is still high-speed, the road is relatively narrow, the desert is flat, and there are even clear ruts. The high-sand area is not as much as the third stage, and it is not as difficult as expected. The second half The 100-kilometer road is very bumpy, which is a test for the shock absorbers of the car. This stage is not particularly difficult for the navigator, and there is only one place where it is easy to make a mistake.” ——The navigator of the Beijing off-road family Run Racing team Li Pengcheng
The 2019 China Tower (International) Rally and China Autocross Championship Xinjiang Substation ended on May 27th for the sixth stage (Xiyuan Natural Glacier Water Stage). Due to safety and other reasons, the organizing committee canceled the motorcycle race on the day. The French driver Christian Lavigne/Jean-Pierre Gassin of the Beijing Off-Road Family Team in the car group ranked first in the national four-wheel drive group with a time of 5 hours, 14 minutes and 45 seconds, and was also the fastest in the car group score. Han Wei/Liao Min of the Geely Shell Lubricant Team ranked first in the national two-wheel drive group with a time of 5 hours, 14 minutes and 49 seconds.
The total length of the SS6 stage is 404.27 kilometers. The starting point and the ending point are located near Hotan G217 National Highway 500K and Pishan County respectively. There is 70-80 kilometers of Shagai Road after the kilometer, which is relatively easy.
The first 150 kilometers coincide with the last 150 kilometers after the SS5 stage. The difference is that compared with the SS5 stage, a section of sand and gravel road has been added, which is 50 kilometers longer than before. The most difficult place is from 200-240 kilometers, which is a high-sand area with soft sand, many chicken nest pits, and small terrain, so it is easy to lose points and get lost. The organizing committee has done a lot of work, planted a lot of colorful flags on the road and repeated road surveys, which pressed a lot of ruts, but due to the recent dusty weather, almost all the rut marks were covered, and the colored flags were blown down. If the driver does not strictly follow the instructions in the road book and strays into the two sides of the marked route, it is easy to fall into the chicken nest pit or sand pit, and it is difficult to get out of trouble.
The difficulty factor of this stage is as high as 9 points. Most of the areas passed by the stage are the routes that the Shahai veterans marched into Hotan. By recreating the true history of the Shahai veterans to today’s people, you can feel the march of all the officers and soldiers of the Heroes on the eve of the founding of the People’s Republic of China. In Xinjiang, it took more than half a month to travel 1,580 kilometers, crossing the Taklimakan Desert, known as the “Sea of Death”, with a lofty spirit of selfless dedication to the motherland and perseverance without regret.
