  • Teaser Paragraph:

    Returning to the Sardinia Rally one year after his debut participation at the week-long event, Yamaha Motor Europe Chief Operating Officer Eric de Seynes together with co-driver Camelia Liparoti find themselves at the top of the rally's SSV class standings after the first two stages of the event held on the picturesque Italian island.

Once again showing his passion for motorsports, Eric de Seynes entered the 2017 edition of the event with Yamaha's new YXZ1000R SS SE side-by-side machine and alongside eight time Dakar Rally finisher Camelia Liparoti. Getting a first taste of rally competition with his participation in 2016, Eric de Seynes returned to Sardinia better prepared and with higher expectations for 2017.

Kicking things off with a short Prologue in the city of San Teodoro, this 10th edition of the Sardinia Rally sees all competitors race a total of 1,320 km over six days, across the island of Sardinia. Getting off to a steady start during the short Prologue, the duo entered Sunday's stage one on a high. Including 320km of racing, the stage provided numerous navigational challenges for all competitors.

Successfully battling their way to the finish of the longest stage of the rally, Eric de Seynes and Camelia Liparoti posted the second best time in both special tests on day one to find themselves at the top of the of the provisional SSV class' standings.

Improving their pace on Monday, Eric and Camelia topped the first special test while retaining their lead in the SSV standings.

The race continues with a Marathon stage tomorrow (Tuesday) from Arborea to the city of Sa Itria in the heart of Sardinia.
