October 16, 2017 Day 4

Day4 – Morelia – Guanajuato

Exciting day today. They moved our starting position to 12 to make it so we had only faster cars around us  we still caught the car in front during the stages. However the official results were off but several minutes per stage on day 3  we are waiting to see if they use the GPS Eztrack times instead of the 30 year old timing system…

The first 3 stages in the morning were the same stages in Mil Cumbre we ran yesterday but in opposite direction. In the unofficial results we ran 5th, 5th and 6th respectively. After 250 km of transit and slow moving through the Welcome arches at Dolores Hidalgo, where the service was held, the engine started to overheat.

Working on cooling the engine and fixing the fan problem

The clouds started gathering but fortunately it did not rain.

There were 3 speed sections in the afternoon between the town Dolores Hidalgo and Guanajuato. Pearl ran 8th, 2nd and 15th respectively, all unofficial results.

Plaza de La Paz, downtown Guanajuato where the race ended for the day.
Leaving the finish area and going for more service.

There is no drivers meeting tonight so we do not know yet if we have moved up in the starting order.
