Day 28: Kosice – Bratislava ( 491 km )

Today turned out to be the toughest driving day so far with 5 time trials and tight times to keep within. Even though we were driving hard, we almost didn’t make our designated control slot. We didn’t make any stops along the way other than to get fuel, but lost a lot of time waiting in line to complete the trials. Although we just about made it with minutes to spare, many of our competitors received penalties.
Most of the time trials took place on forest roads that were closed especially for the rally. The last of the stages took place on the Slovakia ring and consisted of a 9 km lap, but not all on the track. Rather bizarrely we found ourselves alternating between the circuit and the service roads.
We had quite a lot of traffic driving into Bratislava which was fine for us, but frustrating for those in open cars as it also started to pour down with rain. To have a change from the usual hotel buffet dinner we later decided to head into town for some traditional Slovak food with another Swiss father-daughter team.
