This year’s single timed race was conducted on the extremely difficult “section 5” restricted road as the first event with many difficult obstacles, requiring utmost focus and experience from vehicles and drivers alike.
Chinese team coach Liu Yinhao: Because of our equipped advantages, the race officials temporarily increased the height of section 5’s limit pole. This was done so that even the slightest carelessness on our part will cause our vehicles to hit the pole while driving though them and causing us to take a penalty. Face this situation, we made some on the spot adjustments to our strategy to ensure that we successfully complete the course. The focus point of the singles timed race was the water obstacle road which at 1.7 meters at the deepest; deep enough to seep into the driver’s cab. Our drivers were able to perform this part of the race flawlessly and showed off SHACMAN military vehicles superior qualities.
