well, well well… Not bad for a new concept, 6 cars got in on time, a 7th got in late because of a broken alternator belt. It seems it rained a bit on the day…. The rivers are swelling and the cockpit of the buggy looked like a swimmingpool. But lets not drop the guard.. This is still the Dakar, and there s a long way to go…. Mr Tim Coronel seems to be the leader of the pack. From what we hear from the bivouak, he is driving like a maniac but he is taking care of the car, managing to get very few scartches on the bodywork.
