CGR is an international-level motorcycle race with long-stage, great-difficulty, large-scale and the independent intellectual property rights, which is the highest levels of international long-distance cross-country rally registered by FIA firstly, and also the one of the most difficult rally in the world, known as "Chinese Dakar'.

As one of the most famous off-road vehicle teams, Giti team was debuted "Chinese Dakar" equipped with JAC S5 and the professional dresses. This is the first public performance for S5 attending this kind of races and it is also the first time for JAC entering the ranks of professional car races.
As the champion of 2012 China Cross-Country Rally (CCR), Giti team was well prepared. On the drivers' side, Giti team owned a star camp composed of some important people active in the all kinds of races such as Li Guojing and Lu Bing long; on the vehicle's side, Giti team carefully selected JAC S5 as their "war chariot". The general manager of Giti team said, the overall performance of S5 completely measured up to the professional racing standard after professionally modified, it can deal with various complicated roads. With S5 joining in, we are more full of expectations to the race.
Except S5 as the main chariot racing, JAC also sent another 2 units of S5 as media vehicles and 1 JAC heavy-duty truck and 1 JAC pickup as logistical support vehicles, forming a large-scale JAC group, which is unique in CGR this year.
The race began in Shawan, but S5's performance is not eye-catching because of the route and machinery problems. But in the second stage, S5 overcame all the difficulties; at last ranked No.12 with the score of 51 minutes and 13 seconds, and the position has improved 44 places compared to the results of the first stage, creating not a small miracle in CGR history! In the third stage of the competition, S5 did not slow down the pace of campaign and successfully conquered the gravel roads, shallow sandy areas and desert roads, and ranked No.9 from No. 12, with the overall stage ranked No. 12 after the three stages.
Sep. 19th is a traditional Chinese festival---Mid-Autumn Festival. 1.5km short tracks race in CGR were live on CCTV5 in that day. S5 belonging to Giti team became the most popular star in this stage. Finally, with the absolute advantage of 1 minute 13 seconds, S5 gained the first place in the stage, exceeding the second place for eight seconds and becoming absolute "dark horse" in this rally. Whether from the drivers' strength or form the racing input, this result are much better than expected both for JAC and for the driver.The brutal desert stage test has begun, we expect to continue to maintain the advantage and create another miracle.
Although the brilliant achievement is expecting, the confidence that dare to compete with other famous brands in the hardest competition in China comes from JAC long-term efforts. As a Chinese independent auto brand, JAC has been practicing the concept of “Quality Vehicles" and building the new benchmark in Chinese auto brand. In CGR, S5 as the media vehicle all belonged to producing models.
