Connection 349km | Special Stage 314km | Total 663km


The format is tighter for the day’s race against the clock... as are the mountain tracks featuring in the special section. Experts in sliding and on the road will be able to showcase their skills here, as long as they stay constantly focused. Those hunting down the leaders will be on high alert during this route, which has been designed for opportunists. But the programme could also be transformed by any rain: even the strongest competitors do not necessarily perform well on heavy ground.

The GREEN section of the route is the connection , the RED is the Special Section of the stage.

I like the look of that crazy thing. Maybe he should try a Ariel Nomad next year.

Hope to have some incar video this evening

More soup

Are they using same wiper blades that they were few years back weren't they a sponsors?

Don't know, but the brand was Scrubblade. I've used them before, and they worked good. They worked really well on my prerunner. Only negative was they are a little bit louder then a standard blade due to the duel blade design. The noise was when the double blade reversed direction. They also worked well on wiping bugs off the windshield. I would assume they would be good for snow too.

No kidding. Hope the track opens up soon.

Soup is quite descriptive TOG.

I seen the Tatanka shortcut on premium and ordered a cpl jars.
On the donation link that was started by 7gason7 I seen Kevin Urie was asking for it so I pasted the link for him.
I would have ordered it sooner myself if there was a quick link on the main page so if you can maybe one could be posted.

Just a quick 2 cents worth.

Sweet. Thanks for the link Carl! Being in marketing I want to make sure The Planet gets the sale.

No Problem glad to help.

Please please,. !!!

Next year the other Gordini's need a slightly different paint scheme so the fans down there know not ever Gordini is RG.

The problem with that is you need to pack two sets of replacement body panels. Inefficient use of already tight storage space.
