Day #24 - Smolensk to Minsk Belorussia (554km)

Posted on 6th July, 2016

Day #24 - Smolensk to Minsk Belorussia (554km)

Rally STATS:

Day: 12hrs 23mins (Total 188hrs 29mins) Overall Position: 18  Class Position: 5

An early start leaving hotel at 6.45 to cross the border in to Belarus. Drive through no control which surprised us - why the need for a Visa if it's not being checked?

Met at the first petrol station for signing in and the start of s long day . 550km and four time trials with a lunch parade and some bad weather meant an 8pm arrival in Minsk. Looks a lovely City but we won't see much of it as work needed on car. Replacement axle strap and brake adjustments topped the list. Dinner at 10pm not ideal but that's an Endurance Rally for you. 
 

Another similar day today as we head for Poland . Belarus has a much more Western feel to it and is worth a re visit . 

 

Belarus here we come - won't miss the Russian roads  Oh look it's raining again ! 

  

Another crowd meets us at our lunchtime parade 

Geographical centre of Europe in Belarus ? 

 

Minsk - looks modern - just a shame we won't have time to explore.

Back on the road again.... RA & GY
