XADO DRC 2017
On September 16–17, 2017, one of the stages of the National Rally Cup of Ukraine XADO DRC took place in Kharkiv and its suburbs. This year, almost 60 professional and amateur sportsmen took part in the racing and just crowded with their racing cars the main square of Kharkiv, where the festive opening of the rally was conducted. XADO Motorsport team couldn’t miss such an event and took part in the competition in full strength with Chmykh’s and Besedin’s crews.
After opening sportsmen started preparations for the very rare event in Ukrainian motorsport — night racing at the special section “AERO”. Up until midnight, the drivers had to find out who better navigates the road in the dark. And the next day, in the early morning, all the racers stood at the starting point of another track not far from Derhachi. The crews had to cover special sections “Rybaki”, “Yar”, and “Teren” several times.
From 45 cars, which had started the competition, only 36 crossed the finish line. Subaru and Ford of the XADO team have finished the racing without any special adventures. Stanislav Besedin and Nikolai Chmykh became the winners in their categories. We can also congratulate N. Chmykh with the victory in the overall standing of XADO DRC rally.
