Information
Date and time SS Information
12.09.2021 13:09 15 flash info (44 - Greensmith Gus / Patterson Chris): Seeing that our form on rougher rallies this year has generally been strong I was hoping for a little bit more, but for one reason or another it hasn’t come. I was enjoying the battle with Adrien but unfortunately he hit problems this morning.
12.09.2021 13:09 14 flash info (44 - Greensmith Gus / Patterson Chris): Thankfully there's not as much to fight for, so we don't have to be in a battle. The notes in this stage and the last one were shocking - I'm driving more on sight than I am on my pace notes.
12.09.2021 13:09 13 flash info (44 - Greensmith Gus / Patterson Chris): It wasn't a good stage. I was struggling to find a line and the grip. Not good enough.
11.09.2021 17:09 12 flash info (44 - Greensmith Gus / Patterson Chris): I just didn't do a good stage. I couldn't find the rhythm on the first pass, and even with the changes I couldn't find a rhythm on the second.
11.09.2021 16:09 11 flash info (44 - Greensmith Gus / Patterson Chris): It was quite different to this morning. Kind of slippery in places, but I didn't have the best run. I'm pretty sure softs [tyres] would have been the better option in there.
11.09.2021 12:09 10 flash info (44 - Greensmith Gus / Patterson Chris): I didn't expect it to be so muddy in places. Two softs [tyres] in there would have been a better option, but I didn't have a good stage in there. I struggled to find the rhythm and I had one big moment. Thankfully there was nothing on the inside, or that would have been a big plane crash.
11.09.2021 11:09 9 flash info (44 - Greensmith Gus / Patterson Chris): It's cleaning, but that's rallying. I had a spin two thirds of the way through the stage - I was too fast in a braking right into a hairpin left. Thankfully I managed to turn it around and only lost maybe three seconds.
11.09.2021 09:09 8 flash info (44 - Greensmith Gus / Patterson Chris): The first half was good, but once we got through the forest section, [the tyres] were gone. The last half of the stage was just purely manic and it was very tricky.
11.09.2021 09:09 7 flash info (44 - Greensmith Gus / Patterson Chris): It seemed better than yesterday. Still not great - in the twisty sections I'm sometimes struggling with the rhythm.
10.09.2021 18:09 6 flash info (44 - Greensmith Gus / Patterson Chris): It's not been a good day at the office, and I think the damper has lost all its oil in that one as well. Glad to see the end of the day and we'll go again for tomorrow.
10.09.2021 18:09 5 flash info (44 - Greensmith Gus / Patterson Chris): I had a spin quite early on. I turned in a bit too early and it just pulled me round. Not a good stage, and I think I had a rear left puncture at the end.
10.09.2021 13:09 4 flash info (44 - Greensmith Gus / Patterson Chris): I think there's some damage on the front fight. I’m not sure where it came from, maybe a puncture.
10.09.2021 12:09 3 flash info (44 - Greensmith Gus / Patterson Chris): It's the same here. I could have dealt with it a bit better on the first one and I tried to deal with it here. The rear is hard to keep in a straight line, but I'm doing the best I can.
10.09.2021 12:09 2 flash info (44 - Greensmith Gus / Patterson Chris): There wasn't much grip and the second spare [wheel] was tricky. I couldn't find a rhythm and I just couldn't keep a clean line. Not a good stage.
09.09.2021 17:09 1 flash info (44 - Greensmith Gus / Patterson Chris): It's been in my top three rallies to do before I die! All good. We'll see what tomorrow brings, but it looks fun.
