Here's my Stage 7 map, the real elevation profile, and the Google Earth file. I mapped this almost a week ago but I knew there were issues with it, so I didn't want to publish. But I found some stuff tonight that helped me make corrections in two places, so I think it's pretty good now. The elevation profile that ASO published and gave to the competitors is completely wrong.

From hours of mapping this stage and getting a good detailed view of it, I'd say this one should be pretty good for the Gordini. Though there are still a lot of twisty WRC type roads, there's also a fair amount of rough stuff, and HP (no road) including some dunes. I'm looking for a good result from both Gordinis!

A view of the course...

The start (DSS) is in the wash far in the distance:
42706782.jpg


Well into the stage, after all the rough stuff, crossing this bridge left to right:

Village near the bridge:

Passing this mining village (Santa Ana) on the road above it:

Coming into the next mining village, Animas:

Lots of this along the way:

Heading up that twisty road after passing through mining village San Vicente:

It's treacherous in some places if you get off the road:

There's a lot of "ridge running" on this stage:

Typical road along the way:
82201859.jpg


Fun fun!

Through the badlands:

The wash coming into Tapiza:

They finish the fist half of the stage in the wash passing under the bridge in Tapiza. After this there is a 100km neutralized section on the highway crossing the boarder from Bolivia back into Argentina. Then they have a second Special of a bit over 90km to the finish for the day, then a LONG 280km liaison to the Bivouac in Salta. They do a lot of running up and down washes on this stage, so it could be interesting if it rains hard!

Aren't they still at a pretty high altitude? Low on power for the petro guys.

On the Dutch site RG is starting 16th. Must have used his mulligan to start farther up for this stage
