At exactly 18:00 hours, the Croatia Rally 2012 started. Starting with number one, Juho Hanninen from Finland went first, followed by Iliev from Bulgaria and Gassner Jr from Germany. From the Croatian crew, Juraj Šebalj was first to set out. The ceremonial start brought in a gathering of representatives from the city of Rijeka, our county and main sponsor INA.
