After the spectacular win in the Merzouga Rally a week ago, Team HRC’s Argentinean rider Kevin Benavides is now out in picturesque Sardinia. However, it will be no vacation for Benavides, who will be there competing in the Sardegna Rally Race.

The Sardegna Rally Race, the third round of the FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship gets underway tomorrow, Friday, in Budoni in the North East of the island. Today sees the riders and machines subjected to pre-race technical and administrative checks. The curtain raiser – a short prologue – which will decide tomorrow’s starting order, also takes place today.

Team HRC will be participating in the race with Kevin Benavides, winner of the Afriquia Merzouga Rally a week ago. The rally objective will be for Benavides to put in more mileage and gain more experience with a tough workout on the island. The five-stage Sardegna Rally Race, raced over 1279 kilometres, will feature 751 kilometres of timed special stage and is notorious for its arduous navigational demands. The Sardinian mountains contain a multitude of winding tracks which need continual interpretation of the roadbook.

Benavides, who had previously participated in Sardinia in the International Six Days of Enduro (ISDE) in 2013 – taking the gold medal – will be able to count on the support of Italy’s RS Moto Rally Team, taking part with rider Simone Agazzi.
