The Río Imperial has berthed in Lima, where the 700 vehicles dispatched from Le Havre now await their drivers and pilots. The last few thousand kilometres to Santiago will be far more eventful...
Not a single scratch was found after 22 hours of work unloading 700 vehicles, as explained by Jean-Marc, the operations supervisor in Lima: "We only had to inflate a few tyres and recharge a few batteries. Everything else was in good working order and the vehicles were taken to the parc fermé, where we'll keep a close eye on them until the pilots come to pick them up."
The competitors are expected at Callao Port from December 31 in the morning. The harbour lies just a few kilometres from the technical and administrative scrutineering site, due to open on January 2.
