Friendship rally goes to Angkor

O ne hundred cars will lope across 335 kilometers (207) miles of jungle and

highway this month in a goodwill rally and caravan, from the Thai capital to

Cambodia's Angkor Wat, AFP quoted Isuzu as announcing Feb 4.

Sixty rally

cars are to make the initial 180-kilometer sprint from Bangkok to the eastern

border town of Sakaew February 24.

The racers will be joined by an

additional 40 cars on February 25 for a more casual test of Cambo-dia's Highway

5, covering 155 kilometers (96 miles) of well-traveled road from Poipet on the

boarder to Siem Reap.

A publicist for the event said the trip would

highlight the improved safety of Cambodian roads, where incidents of looting

have been as numerous as potholes.

But sponsor Isuzu will not be taking

chances. At least one vehicle will be an ambulance and participants are to be

protected by extra contingents of the Cambodian national forces throughout their

stay. - AKP
