    Just added this too @carltonkirby

    @carltonkirby: Red flag for cars only. Nasser stuck on rock in swollen river. DeVilliers not attempting to cross. Minis have snorkels... How clever!

    Eurosport's Carlton Kirby confirms, the "red flag" ONLY applies to the cars, many of which are still stuck in the flash floods.

    Pyndon's result should stand, but of course there's all of the rest day to adjust the rules...

    Think that sums up Pynfam tonight

    I have been all over the wonderful world of the web this afternoon searching for information and I have to say that I am always blown away by the amount of support for Lyndon and I thank each and every one of you, without you we wouldn't be here.

    Way to go Lyndon.

    Bet you never thought this would happen, mate.


    May I suggest a show of support for this most excellent effort?

    If you've got the swag, how about a pic of you in it, posted up here?

    Since he has a rest day, somebody here with his number could message him to look in tomorrow, perhaps without warning him? :deal. I would think that he'd be able to get online for that.

    I'll post up a puc when I get home.

    What a fantastic result, although it's a shame all he got was a brief mention on Eurosport but at least Carlton managed to squeeze one in.

    If Lyndon does manage a peek on here, we're all 100% behind you and keep at it! And, don't forget that today you beat some, nay, most of the best in the rally world... :D

    He got a pretty good mention in the early Eurosport show today. But no footage. It does sound like he may get hunted down for an interview tomorrow though ..............
