Atkinson stuck in the snow
- 18th February 2007, 8:44am
Chris Atkinson and Glenn Macneall endured a tough start to the secod day of Rally Norway and dropped out of the top ten after they had a spin and got stuck in a snowdrift. After that the Australian duo focused on building snow rally experience.
They ended the day in 23rd place.
Chris Atkinson: “Today has been quite tricky for us. I’ve never driven in that much snow before. We tried to maintain our position from the start of the leg but a small mistake cost us some time because we went off and took a while to get out of a snow bank. In these conditions I haven’t had quite the level of confidence that I need to set fast times. It’s disappointing to have lost so much time, but the task for Sunday is to finish all four stages and get some more experience of driving on snow and ice.”
