Park your RV's outside the stadium folks, by a footlong and a brewski and pull up a seat for the most challenging indoors marathon rally the world has ever seen (live direct sent on HBO... 19:00 CET 15:00 Pacific central ). We've got pole dancers for the halftime show and all the baguette and brie cheese you can eat... So come on out, we're coming to 10 stadiums across South America in 14 days of rough and tumble off road rallye action, all from the comfort of your very own 85 dollar arena seat... Tired of marching out into the Atacama for hours on end, to wait and see an orange brick fly past in a cloud of dust...? F5¤% that!... come to where the future is... it's the Dakar Grand National Stadium Schmuck Gran Prix Marathon Off Road Indoor Racing Series. DGNSSGPMORIRS
ha ha classic beers on me!!

I went AWOL at WP6 and only just returned (well after most had arrived at the ASS) so it is only a guess/explanation as to why on my part.

He did do engine swaps at stage 2 and 4. But they don't cause that much penalty that's listed, do they? How much time is penalized for engine swaps?
Here is some information from the Freedom rallye racing FB page:

"Luis always wore a pink silicone wrist band in honor of his sister who died of cancer a few years ago. He cut a slither off the rubber bracelet and used that as a gasket! He put the cylinder head back on and believe it or not, The engine started!
At this point Luis decided to take a “short cut” and incur the penalties of bypassing a couple of Check Points, rather than risk not arriving at the Finish Line at all. And he made it!! "

I cannot find exactly how much he would have been penalized by this (the rule book says refer to roadbook) but I am sure that is part of the penalities...

I spent dunno how much time to find out what was wrong. I thought it was my fault, but no... haha... you fill in the rest ;-) But it's weird... if you add 1h20 on stage time then do it on all pages right? And if not on live timing okay, but it's in the checkpoints listing, but not in the standings. So, kinda strange to me. I wouldn't be surprised if they add it later to the other results as well...

Looking at the stage tomorrow, it will be a first where most of the stage is above 3,500m

Thats also why it is short I think. It does not look very technical at all, just lots of rough two track, maybe a bit of off piste at the beginning.

Anyway I wanted to say if this stage is a success, Bolivia will be in the menu for next year.

Its very VERY high for helicopters to fly, theyre close to if not at their ceiling altitudes. Those guys doing the flying tomorrow will need brass balls, big time.

The thing is you have to pull the 1:h 20m to create a comparable scratch result for all the field (as on the nutralisation if you arrive and pass the end control zone you are penalized early... but if you arrive late, you are on your own time). It looks "wierd" on the spreadsheet, but it's accurate as far as determining the rankings.

And we love you for it, Mischa.

Racing-support cars/trucks for the bike teams?

I'm curious, why don't the big bike teams enter cars or trucks into the racing classes (ie #3xx, #4xx, #5xx vehicles) to lend support for mechanicals?

Am I wrong in remembering that this was the original purpose of the cars/trucks classes?

Is it only because of the start time gap between the front bikes and the following cars, that is, that by the time the cars reached them they'd be out of contention? Seems like you could do a chain: team "captain" squares a wheel, swaps rims with water carrier, water carrier waits for fresh wheel off the back of the car. That way the captain doesn't lose all the time to wait for the car, and the water carrier doesn't lose as much time as they would trying to ride in on a squared wheel.

And for that matter, same question for the cars teams, why don't e.g. Robby or Nasser have "garbage trucks" puppydogging them across SA?

[QUOTE=troy safari carpente;20447863]Yes Dr Mitcho... THAT's what marathon rallying is all about... at the grass roots level in any case!

We must get ourselves some flatbill hats... wel me anyway... you're already stunning in your nurses outfit...
