    I spoke to Pyn on the Friday before he set off and he said it was like $1000 to hire a photographer, so he said he wasn't going to bother until after the race. He said he'd do some Yorkshire wheeling and dealing with anyone who took any good shots.

    I'm loving the one with the helicopter in the background over the dune :clap

    Live timing is showing Pyn in 56th after WP7. Correct?

    Any other updates?

    Just to say thank you for all your help and support, and all the time you put in to follow his race. With a full time job, I don't really have time to take care of all the updates regarding Lyndon's progress, the website, facebook accounts and the support packages. I really really appreciate it and I would never have been able to deal with everything without your help. And I know Lyndon is feeling the same. Thank you soooo much.

    Strong ride!

    My guess, without having spoken to him, is that the terrain was tougher (and that agreed with him), he has the hang of navigation and the rest of the Rally habits, and the result just came together without necessarily indicating that he pushed harder or took more risk.

    Can't wait for the next call-in!
