Thanks for all the positive thoughts! HereHere is a note from our driver slash owner:
quick update from LaPaz

We made it in at about 10 last night, unofficially finishing second in class. Like all teams we had our shares of issues, a bad stuck in silt moment and putting the car on it's lid. Lukily the latter was at low speed and set off by an obtacle avoidance maneuver in low visibility (dust) and a rain rut.

Smaller issues like an inop sequential gear indicator, a GPS the would flip it's image upside down, a dieing fuel pump and a broken rear limit strap had us passing the same cars again and again, eating away at our progress. The no wind dusty conditions was a major hinderance in making real progress for all.

The chase crew did not have it easy either, with no tracking and a race car radio that worked when it wanted to, coodinating people was tough.

In the end we made it and are very happy with that.

We'll post more latter, when we've recovered.

Cheers from La Paz Daniel
