A famous chef started Sunday by winning SR4: Michel Chabran, entered with his elder son, Jules Chabran, in a 1979 BMW 323i. This happened between Saint-Sauveur-de-Montagut and Saint-Andéol-de-Vals, on a very long stage (39.979km). Michel Chabran had already won one stage of E-Rally Monte-Carlo, the electric version of the “Monte”. In this stage, he also had the satisfaction of beating three Porsches fair and square, including that of last year’s winners, Belgians Philippe and Antoine Cornet de Ways Ruart, as well as a… Zastava 1100 dating back to 1979 also, entered by a Polish couple, Stanislaw and Anna Postawka. It was just the start of a busy Day 1 of the Common Leg, with three more SRs scheduled to follow.
