second day and a bit of bother


Second day report.
Today was one of those Carrera days!
Were won our class yesterday and placed a healthy 16 overall - not bad for a 2 litre car against all of 7 litre monsters.
After a 7am start we did well in the first four stages. Half way into the 21km fifth stage we had a blow out on the left rear. To make things worse. It happened on a steep hill so changing to tyre took almost 10 minutes - no prizes tonight. We will have to wait for tonights drivers meeting to see how bad it has damaged us. There's still a long way to go and it could have been much worse as the tyre blew at around 60mph - in the next stage we were at around 120!!
The highlight of the day was the wonderful reception at Tehuacan (picture attached)
Anyway we live to fight another day.
Another update tomorrow.
