Audi Rally Tour 2003
We took the Porsche Cayenne S racing.

The Audi Rally Tour was the perfect venue to test the Porsche Cayenne S road and racing capabilities. The event comprehends a grueling 700 kms rally and a day at the track and is specially made for sports cars.

Porsche declared they were not racing the Cayenne as the press anticipated a Dakar entry from Porsche.

We took a head start and all we can say is that is was a tremendous success.
Actually we took 2 Porsche Cayenne S to the event.
The Audi girl liked our Cayenne S.
Now this is a Team, 2 Carreras and 2 Cayenne S!!!
The Porsche Boxster was pretty fast too!!!
Specially this one.
The silver Porsche Carrera.
Ready for the start. Here we go!!!
Regrouping to start Stage 1. This after having to drive out of the largest city in the world, Mexico City.
Stage 3 before lunch, I guess those Carrera were pretty hungry as they kept hauling a.. no matter what road they drove on.
Transit of the last Stage but before that we were coming down that road making 70-90 mph, WOW!!!
Regrouping to enter Veracruz, all 47 cars. After we started the last transit I heard from the other Cayenne: "Take it easy boys" Yeah right we were cruising at 240 kph passing almost everybody, but hey, we had to prove the Cayenne was one of the fastest cars on the rally.
