Do you think the 15 min fueling allowance has been applied to the ASS time?
Lost a bunch at the end.
46:54 behind after both stages....24th place
the gordini would have been great in this sand, for sure.
Uh, beg to differ. That was it's weak point due to solid rear axle.
Blade Hildebrand in. +01:04:48
Blade also lost a bunch at the end.
Comparing RG's time to the top time in the actual SxS class, he was only 17 seconds faster than the leader.
Side note, Casey Currie had a bad day over there in SxS. Finished 13th-ish (still UTV's out). But that was only a minute behind Blade and better than Cole.
Any idea what is really different between the Speed UTV's and the ones competing in the SxS class?
Inquiring minds want to know. I want to know.
