  • We had a great ride.
  • Had a free way, no cars in front or behind us,
  • so we felt very comfortable.
  • We were around 5th or 6th place what was perfect.
  • But some 30kms after the start driveshaft has broken,
  • in the midlle of fesh-fesh totally crazy zone.
  • We wanted to repair the car with own hands,
  • just a hammer and rough power, smash the shaft back.
  • We have locked and connected the differential to continue just on 3 wheels.
  • The loss was huge, over 40 minutes at the end.
  • And the whole nice day was spoiled.
  • Big fesh-fesh and stony fields we have to drive through.
  • Either you had to close your eyes and go with full throttle, waiting if the wheels will manage,
  • or go slowly and carefully to survive that somehow.
  • We had a puncture just on km 13 and lost good position on the track,
  • which is crucial in the fesh-fesh.
  • We made a big hit with our car while overtaking another one,
  • what recalled me our Morroco crash and I was just waiting to go over the roof again.
  • Luckily the car has landed back on wheels.
  • Tomorrow is the longest stage of the whole race, most time in fesh-fesh.
  • Fortunatelly our fast assistance truck has brought us spare parts,
  • and mechanics from the truck take care now about my car, changing the whole front differential,
  • becase it suffered a lot while driving just on 3 wheels.
  • So big job to be done on the car, hope it will be ready to continue tomorrow.
  • I expect a lot of problems in the fesh-fesh with difficult overtaking.
  • I think it will be another stage we will not be able to enjoy much as we could on the beginning today,
  • but it is how it is...
  • So finally we are in full action, we had to help Martin a bit with changing of the driveshaft.
  • Also we had to change the front differential, we are working on it now with Radek Baculík.
  • We will do everything necessary and then the same on car of Tomáš Ouředníček,
  • so guys can continue tomorrow for the best possible result.
  • The track itself was so rough for cars, so only after we will fix them, we can go to bed.
