October 19, 2017 Day 7 – Final day

Day 7 – Zacatecas to Durango

After a 390 km tranzit first thing in the morning we got to the service place at a gas station along the Durango – Mazatlan road. We had a strong morning, the top 10. But at Espinoza del Diablo the cluch started slipping and it was not safe to continue.

This year we finished the race on the top of the trailer. We knew this will be a learning experience and it is a bummer that we did not get to go through the finish line in Durango, but Taz is already working on a work list what needs to be changed and improved like gearing, brakes and cooling systems.

two days after the finish of the race and there are still no final results on the race website. http://www.lacarrerapanamericana.com.mx/2017/

It is a little frustrating too. Hopefully soon 😊
