Servo pump problem for Instaforex Loprais Team
Shortly after the start the hopes for a good result in the today’s stage dissolved. We had to stop and the finding that the culprit was once again the pump seems almost incomprehensible. But it was a fact. Then, of course, we tried to make up for the loss in a chase with all the problems and dangers. Dust, anger, impossibility to overtake, so the final 9th position in the stage under these circumstances is actually a success. Overall, we aer in the 11th place with a loss of 36.51 min to the first truck. If we do not have to fight with today’s issues, the chances of a better result are still alive. But the difficulty of the stages must continue.
What awaits us tomorrow? January 1, 2017 – Stage no. 5: TUPIZA – ORURO… total of 683 km, special section for the trucks of 438 km. Even here, we will drive at high altitudes and even here we are in for some dunes. So we all really have something to look forward to.
The first truck starts the speed trial at 14.58 CET.
