Kids throwing rocks at De Rooy's truck yesterday (and a sheared bolt in the shock mount slowing him down), rally route going through a massive bee yard ))) Agoshkov coming to bivouac last as he had issues with bike, 3 hours of rest and he won 21 positions today. Tomecek comeback single handed in his Tatra going up in the rankings. Serradori won stage today in the buggy.
There are some DNF competitors out there now just that the webb site has not been up dated. Unfortunately Lydia Truglio Beaumont crashed yesterday and was flown back to France in a Coma. Get well very soon Lydia.
With the ACR if you do not finish the days stage due to mechanical, got lost, took the easy way out of the stage (back to a main Road) or did not finish the stage in the allotted time you are allowed to continue in the rally but you do incur massive penalties. This applies with international rallies as well. It is only Dakar (ASO) that disqualifies you if you don't finish the days stage. Hence why you seen DNFs on every stage.
