    Now 2 days after a hit with a motorcycle, they appeal, because earlier in the race sainz hit a motorcycle to, and not penalty, it's unfair they say.
    Orley hit a columbian motorcycle.

    Those cooling system adjustments made yesterday during the rest period must not be paying off.:cry. Higher elevations seem to be killing performance of his car....JMO.

    Just got information from a friend, that this dutch rider in malle moto category is actually living and riding at north Bohemia in Krkonose mountains and local riders takes him as "Czech" even when his nationality is "Dutch".
    He is doing quite well, no penalty, about +9h = position around 50th place.
    Today is riding between 60-70th place.

    So if you want, add this guy in the watch list as is "known friend" ;)

    Is Coma just sitting on Bang Bang rear fender? I doubt it or CDP would have passed them. So...Can Bang Bang open and lead the entire stage? I betcha he does. He has 41 minutes to win back...over 7 stages...

    So does that mean JBB caught Coma on the track +4 mins and then took another minute at the front, or has he just closed 1 minute of the 4 he started behind him?

    In Fr 4 you can see the salt guy with a big ball of coca leaves in his mouth - very traditional in these parts.
