Motorshow 2018 is fully experienced at Carén Lagoon’s Motor Park, through practice and recce and at the press conference, at a race that’s already grabbing thousands of RallyMobil Championship fans’ attention.
It all began on the press point, attended by the Sports Minister, Pauline Kantor, and main R5 figures. Activities kicked off at 10:00 AM. One journalist per media arrived to the event’s spot, in Pudahuel, and had the chance to sit on a co-driver’s seat to experience rally at first hand.
Some of the star guests who came were Chilean X Games Coco Zurita, who shines worldwide and Inna Moll, a Chilean instagram influencer who went around the race track seating next to Jorge Martínez.
The Drivers Meeting was held around 2:00 PM and then the open practice began. Of course, the day didn’t lack complications. Patricio Muñoz rolled his competition car over on a curve at the 2.6 kilometer race track. Also, Cristóbal Vidaurre and Samuel Israel had to retire before the end of their laps because of radiator issues and hose damage, respectively. The rest of the competitors had a normal day of ultimate practices.
The atmosphere was livened up by several motorbike freestyle riders, who go up ramps that take them to more than 12 meters off the ground and allow them to make stunts that will certainly thrill the public on Saturday.
