Information
Date and time SS Information
18. 06. 2017 08:38 9 (7 - von Thurn und Taxis Albert / Degandt Bjorn): technical issue - gearbox shifting with clutch
18. 06. 2017 08:34 9 flash info (7 - von Thurn und Taxis Albert / Degandt Bjorn): We had problems at the beginning, there was something wrong with clutch but in the event it started working again. It was a good first run, we will try to set good time.
17. 06. 2017 16:12 8 flash info (7 - von Thurn und Taxis Albert / Degandt Bjorn): Yes, it is incredible how hard, hard the conditions are. I was a bit cautious and I am happy to finish today. Yes, sometimes it was more survival than a normal rally, I mean it was hardcore but we are looking forward to competing again tomorrow.
17. 06. 2017 13:32 6 flash info (7 - von Thurn und Taxis Albert / Degandt Bjorn): It was a very difficult stage, I had several big moments because there were a lot of stones in gravel, behind the bridge and lots of dust.
17. 06. 2017 12:37 5 flash info (7 - von Thurn und Taxis Albert / Degandt Bjorn): Yes, I am pretty surprised about the state of the stage. We were lucky that we had no damage, there were lots of stones so I will carry on being cautious while driving in the deep sand and over bumps so that I do not damage the car.
17. 06. 2017 11:14 4 (7 - von Thurn und Taxis Albert / Degandt Bjorn): technical issue - suspension unit
17. 06. 2017 10:34 4 flash info (7 - von Thurn und Taxis Albert / Degandt Bjorn): Yes, it is a special stage, it was quite difficult to drive the car. Yes, for sure, we will try to change a little bit of setup of the car in the service. Suspension unit is not good after this stage.
17. 06. 2017 08:48 3 flash info (7 - von Thurn und Taxis Albert / Degandt Bjorn): We are struggling with the grip and also a little bit with the setup of the car, the car is quite low for the stage. There are stones a bit, we slip a bit, there is a lot of stuff to take in account. We do not have so much confidence at the moment.
17. 06. 2017 08:00 2 flash info (7 - von Thurn und Taxis Albert / Degandt Bjorn): Incredible. Nothing really easy, it was very very slippy, I did not expect gravel to be so slippy, I had to be pretty careful, it was really difficult.
18. 06. 2017 15:44 14 flash info (7 - von Thurn und Taxis Albert / Degandt Bjorn): It was not a classic event but it was amazing, incredible how rough it was, and that is why it is a kind of paradise here at the moment. I am so happy that I reached the end, I hope to have a good position, you know it is very hard to lead such a strong competition. I am super super happy. Tarmac is a little bit better. It was a difficult rally, very bumpy and dusty.
18. 06. 2017 15:05 13 flash info (7 - von Thurn und Taxis Albert / Degandt Bjorn): It was quite fast. I had a little moment at the beginning of the stage but we are here, we are happy.
18. 06. 2017 12:36 12 flash info (7 - von Thurn und Taxis Albert / Degandt Bjorn): I am so happy with the stage. It was terribly hard. I am happy with the setup of the car, it is better now. I am just so happy to be here. Sometimes it is really slippery because of the stones at the bottom.
18. 06. 2017 11:37 11 flash info (7 - von Thurn und Taxis Albert / Degandt Bjorn): The stage was tricky but not that much as I expected. The next stage will be pretty hard. I will need to gain more confidence to drive really fast.
18. 06. 2017 09:33 10 flash info (7 - von Thurn und Taxis Albert / Degandt Bjorn): Yes, man, I expected the second stage to be easier but there were big stones, it was very bumpy, dusty and sandy there. I was trying to be as careful as I could.
17. 06. 2017 07:05 1 flash info (7 - von Thurn und Taxis Albert / Degandt Bjorn): It was very difficult. Although we made good pacenotes in recce, we are still a little bit cautious about the stones, loads of stones, in order not to pick up puncture.
