A SUPER Special Stage in Hong Kong for the first time to begin the 555 Hong Kong to Beijing Rally is ''90 per cent'' certain according to one of the key organisers of the event, executive director of the Hong Kong Automobile Association, Kendy Chan. Chan and Clerk of the Course for the marathon 3,800-kilometre dash to the Chinese capital, Willard Martin, inspected a site on Stonecutters Island yesterday and both declared the site ideal. Lack of a viable venue in Hong Kong has seen the previous four editions of the rally officially start in China with only a ceremonial flag-off in the territory. Chan said he would know for certain at the end of the month whether the two-kilometre tarmac Super Special Stage would go ahead. ''We have been dealing closely with the British Armed Forces who use Stonecutters and they have been very co-operative. Without their support we would not have reached the stage we are at now,'' Chan said. The HKAA executive officer said that if Hong Kong Government approval was not forthcoming, a site seven kilometres outside of Guangzhou had been earmarked. ''But obviously we want to have the Super Special Stage in Hong Kong,'' Chan said. While Chan and Martin were inspecting the site, team manager for the 555 Subaru-Prodrive team, John Spiller, jetted into Hong Kong to tie up last-minute details for his team's four-car challenge. The Subaru team completed an historic one-two-three finish last year but Spiller isn't expecting to emulate the feat this year. ''The opposition is much tougher and our tactics will be to win the rally and everything after that will be a bonus,'' he said. Backing the four-car challenge will be eight trucks and eight pursuit cars manned by 46 specialist mechanics and technicians.
