BEIJING – Zhengzhou Nissan’s tough Nissan Navara pickup has won a difficult stage of the 2018 Taklimakan Rally, an extreme motorsports event in China.
Three Navara trucks began the eight-stage rally in Urumqi, Xinjiang, in China’s far northwest. The trucks followed the old Silk Road for 2,769 km, including the blazing hot and technically challenging Gobi Desert. Of 90 automobiles taking part in Asia’s largest annual off-road endurance rally, only 59 could complete the entire challenge.
Zhengzhou Nissan drivers Ho-Ututunasheng and En Wang – competing in the 215-km SS1 stage from Turpan to Shanshan – drove their Navara to victory in the T2.1 category, while Zhengzhou Nissan also clenched four of the eight “Golden Helmet” prizes.
