The sand blowing competition in the desert achieves the ultimate off-road. On May 20th, the 2019 China Ring Tower (International) Rally and China Autocross Series (CCR) will begin in the beautiful city of Aksu.
Not only fueling the engine, but also being fearless, Chery’s latest flagship SUV, the new generation Tiggo 8, will take part in this event. With a 1.6TGDI+7DCT golden power combination, it will shine in the Gobi desert and point to the highest glory of China’s rally competition.
Extreme off-road forging ultimate quality
China Ring Tower (International) Rally
The China Ring Tower (International) Rally is the first in Asia and the largest authoritative cross-country event in China where cars and motorcycles compete in the same field. The 15-day devil race will fully test the cars and players. In this long-distance cross-country rally known for its arduous schedule and harsh environment, participating vehicles and drivers face challenges of thousands of kilometers, high temperature, water shortage, and sandstorms. In the intricate stages, desert, Gobi, mountains, river valleys, and basins coexist, and the dangerous devil stage has caused countless heroes to fall into the sand. At the same time, this competition introduces the high-altitude stage for the first time, and the proportion of desert will exceed 50%, which is known as the most difficult and challenging schedule in recent years. For SUVs, this arena is undoubtedly an excellent quality touchstone.
In the 2017 China Ring Tower (International) Rally, the Chery team used the Tiggo 7 plain car for the first round of the ring tower. It not only successfully completed the entire journey of the ring tower known as the “Oriental Dakar”, but also easily won gasoline (T2.1 ) Factory Team Cup champion, creating a miracle since the start of the 2005 Tournament Rally.
