Rally Estonia: out of race – main drive shaft split

Posted on Updated on

This morning we restarted an were so happy to be back in the rally.
First special this morning SS10 was really nice and we got into the groove, but still keeping a lite back not to push the car too hard. Reading Pace notes worked better today and I almost nailed every one!
Next special we were really on it, and pushing a bit harder…
Bang, on a tight left hander the connection for the main drive shaft snapped and we had to roll to the side.
Tried to fix it, but had to realise it was game over. Sadly.
Our assistance team came and towed us back to the service park, where we officially handed in the time card.
