DCA World Rally Leg 5: Debre Marcos HADM to Damazin HSDZ


Recommended Posts

Thie 5th Leg of the DCA World Rally follows the course of the Blue Nile from Debre Marcos, near it's source in the highlands of Ethiopia, through the gorges of the Upper and Lower Catarracts, to Damazin, by the man-made Rosieres reservoir.

OAT required anti-icing and altitude necessitated a lean mixture when we took off:

First we had to find the Blue Nile - just a stream here:
