October 17, 2017 Day 5

Day 5 – Guanajuato – San Luis Potosi

The day started good, we finished 5th yesterday and so were placed 8th on the starting position for Day 5. The three morning sections went well – 7th, 7th and 6th respectively – unofficial results.

But than during the second speed section the clutch started slipping and Taz played it safe and had us come to pick them and Pearl up – in the middle of beautiful nowhere 😁

Pearl is getting a ride back to the hotel to have the clutch worked on.

So far this has been a very challenging race. Pearl is a new car for us and it is taking some time “getting to know each other” 😊 As of the official results after the 4th day we are 11th in our class and 28th overall.
