STAGE 12 TRACKING
STAGE 12: SAN JUAN > VILLA CARLOS PAZ
Connection 450km | Special Stage 481km | Total 931km
There is more than 900km to cover on the day before the finish, including more than half in the special section, with the exception of the trucks, whose dimensions are not suitable for some of the tracks on the agenda. In this semi-mountainous terrain, the vegetation which lines their edges might be a bit tight for them! This means that the other vehicles will also have to show dexterity. Fans of pure driving will be at ease, but they’ll have to watch out for blunders: at this stage in the game, a mistake could cost them dearly.
The GREEN section of the route is the connection , the RED is the Special Section of the stage.
yes you are right ,thats why peugs streched wheel base this year
if one where to look in the video section, you can find footage where the HUMMER damn near had to make 3 points turns on the WRC section of the course. That was a deciding factor on the platform change, and the fact the HUMMER program was SOLD. and unlike most race cars that sell for dimes on the dollar,The HUMMER where SOLD for good $
The sale would have been a real coup had the straw not broken the camels back...
Hummer this Diesel that get factory support enough is enough.
Anyway you look at it the 312 is overdue for Wp2
There he is
14th down 4:17
13:16 : Bikes: Blythe out of petrol
The American rider has suffered a blow due to a stoppage 12 kilometres from CP3 (after 248 km), having run out of petrol It is all the more of a pity, because CP3 is the refuelling point for the bikes.
Long ass stage. 300 mile special. 578 miles total. Like driving from Las Vegas to Albuquerque.
