    Thank you for the detailed and interesting updates Annie. Just watched the piece about your Polaris on Eurosport, and how you were approaching the rally steady and consistent to ensure a good finish – but then an oil hose ended it all! So sorry to hear that.

    Better luck next year. Maybe the fact that only a small mechanical problem ended your rally is actually a good thing (better than having a huge problem), and you can fix it for next year.
