3 July. Paris. The beginning of The Raid

“Large things are seen well at a distance”. After almost three months from the end of the 15-th Raid  Paris – North Cape I want to show some especially memorable moments.

Rain. Roadway near Château de Vincennes

Morning of the July 3rd was grey and rainy in Paris. As people said: “Rain in the way cause luck”.

Prelaunch parking

In this unique shot you can see not typical state of the rally cars – without stickers of organizers and sponsors. Under the roof of the podium there is the poster with the raid’s emblem (a head of the elk) and the sign “Paris – Helsinki – Cape Nord 2010”.  Someone thinks that it is looks like comic portrait of the Phillippe Boucher – the raid organizer. But I don’t almost agree with that.

Phillippe has the power of the little buffalo herd :). After all 23 crews plus 3 organizers’ cars require constant attention.

The stickers on the cars will appear sooner. One of the requirement of the raid –posters have to be on the cars from the beginning and till the end.

To be continued…
