20 APRC cars started for Leg 2

Good morning from Rally HQ/Media Centre!
It is the morning of the final day of the Rally Hokkaido, and we are having wonderful weather here unlike the pouring rain yesterday. Some of the officials reported the weather in their stages are good, too.
Early in the morning today, total 20 APRC rally cars departed from the TC11E of the Kita Aikoku Service Park to SS12 OTOFUKE REVERSE 1, which is the first stage of the Leg 2. 23 JRC rally cars followed those APRC cars (among the 26 JRC cars in the Leg 2 start list, 3 of them decided against restarting).
Thank you very much for your support for the crews/teams in Rally Hokkaido!
