Wuf van Ginkel will skip the fourth stage of the Africa Eco Race tomorrow. Van Ginkel and the mechanics of Petronas Team De Rooy Iveco are already on their way to the next bivouac, where they hope to be able to repair the FPT Cursor engine of the Iveco tomorrow by daylight. “It is not terminal, but it is more work than the team can do in one night,” Gerard de Rooy says.
Van Ginkel had to leave the race in the Africa Eco Race in both the second and the third stage. “The truck gets more hits here in Morocco than in for example the Silk Way Rally,” explains Gerard de Rooy. “As a result, some unexpected things have broken. Yesterday there was an oil spill that affected the engine today as well after the expansion tank broke down, causing the engine to get too hot. There was also something wrong with the steering. These are too many small things to rush through. It’s better to deal with it properly and skip a day. A real shame, especially for Wuf, but this was the best solution.”
De Rooy therefore sent the mechanics plus Wuf van Ginkel and Bert van Donkelaar on their way to the next bivouac (Fort Chacal), where they can start working tomorrow morning and have a whole day and evening to get the truck running again.
