    On the road again!
    Upon crossing the border, a change of software is required, which racers and co-drivers will have to install without delay on their hard disks. Against this new backdrop, the daily mileage increases and the dunes temporarily disappear from the landscape. Vigilance is called for on these good tracks that make up most of the route to Uyuni. Once teams reach the barracks, the vehicles are left in the service park, though deprived of their assistance teams for this marathon stage.

    The crews have a long drive today, I wonder where they are spending the night since it is a marathon stage.

    This is where Despres could come in handy, I reckon he’ll be helping SPH

    Yeah team work coming into play with Despres helping - he’s now been stopped for over an hour though apparently!

    Any word on what the problem is. Going to be interesting to see the overall at the end of the day

    Sainz isn’t one to cruise to a finish either. Anything other than a perfect half a rally, with multiple marathon stages coming, and Nasser/GDV are back in the mix!

    Hell.. unless they are cheating, I doubt Sainz knows SPH is still down. Probably expecting him to be on him at any turn. This could even up things today possibly.

    Looks like it’s all on Sainz now!!! Who’d have thought he’d be the last Pug standing in the battle for the win?! As a Pug fan I’m slightly nervous to say the least :-/

    Morning folks. Looks like the surprises keep coming! I guess they'll be robbing parts off of Depres' car for SPH. The big question now will be can Carlos keep it cool and not wad it up. I'n still hoping for a Toyo on the top step!
