Chris Leyds is a real passional in rally-raid, the Dutchman in his forty years is one of those who knows how to develope the sport in the practice. Now he is the team leader of McRae Enduro Racing and he kindly answered some questions for us:
What do you think about Silk Way Rally?
For us this is a nice opportunity to work around at mid-season, this is an event where the balance is right, not too difficult but enough for good testing, the multi terrain is perfect, this is also a good event for our partners and sponsors, really this a very nice adventure!
What are your projects on the next Silk Way?
We will be there with our latest version of our McRae Enduro 3 litre turbo diesel, we now have one car still available, next to the 2 cars which we already entered.
What do you think about the global situation in cross country rally?
We all look to have events like Silk Way, this is what cross country means in terms of stages and facilities. The organizers can guaranty the event and avoid risks of “external factors”. Our hosting Russian friends understand that competitors come from all over the world, and they perfectly managed to show us the beauty of the country!
