Rally Estonia stage 1 – mishaps

Posted on Updated on

SS1 was ok, I got a little mixed up reading som notes cause we’re going so fast. Also had some air over a crest landed a little wobbly. Set 15th time of 34 cars.

But then we lost left rear wheel on ss2…😦
Waiting for assistance all day.

Ove, one of the mechanics, backtracked and found the wheel/drive shaft and the brake pad 1,5 km up the stage!
We’ve been driving on the brake cover when the wheel fell off!

While waiting for the ERC (European Rally Championships) cars to pass so we can tow our car out of the stage, our wheel “worked” as fence post on one of the spectator sections.

Working on the car now. Hope to restart as Stefan has the parts to repair.
