Sixth stage completed

During the sixth stage (yesterday) we had three punctures. When hitting the third puncture we didn't have any more spare tyre, so for the last 21 km of the special we had to drive on a flat tyre. We arrived to the bivouac around 1.30 am last night and todays rally started at 5.00 am. So we didn't sleep much... But we are still in the rally!

We have bought some tyres from one of the professional teams in order to be prepared for future tyre problems.

The car, however, is a dream to drive. It's like floating over the bumpy roads. The tricky part is that when we want to pass cars who are ahead of us we need to drive beside the road and that's where we get all those punctures. Todays stage is more of sandy roads, so let's hope that we can advance in the startlist today!
