Information
Date and time SS Information
12. 09. 2021 13:38 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 13:33 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 13:29 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 17:44 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 16:28 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 12:45 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 11:29 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 09:58 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 09:51 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 18:51 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 18:48 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 13:21 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 12:29 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 12:25 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 17:44 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.
