STAGE 11 TRACKING
STAGE 11: LA RIOJA > SAN JUAN
Connection 281km | Special Stage 431km | Total 712km
The level of difficulty remains the same, but variety will favour the most flexible of drivers and teams. Sand in all its forms will feature, particularly fesh-fesh, the most volatile and heavy kind, which demands both dexterity and patience. But speed will also be an advantage in other, straighter sections, featuring gravel and pebbles. Opportunities will be few and far between, but there is still time to shake up the standings, since the terrain will be favourable to creating significant gaps.
The GREEN section of the route is the connection , the RED is the Special Section of the stage.
Nass may get the stage win at the rate he is going.
RG WP4 -06:14
RG gained back 7 seconds from 3 to 4
Beats a loss
13 secs behind the 317 Renault. 1m55secs ahead of the 323 Mini.
Comments yesterday never did give a shout out for Vasilyev 307 Toyota for finishing 3hd on the stage.
Said Roma got 3hd which SUCKS.
Does anyone know if Sheldon and Jonah are still out there supporting RG at least in at the Biv? Or did RG give them orders to go and "Market" the product and hot rod around like RG did years ago?
The Russian has been quietly chipping away.
Wp5 Nass leads
Nasser goes balls to the wall
nasser provisional leader over peterpecker
If Nasser wins the stage, Stephanie will be sure cry foul.
