    and L'equipe is the largest french sports newspaper with which ASO works together. All regs are posted every year by ASO using l'equipe's server so what you found is actual official regs

    If those guys in the Hilux tried to get there truck to do a handstand 1000 more times, I bet they could never duplicate that again.

    With all of the Hilux trucks running this race, are any of them diesel. Have only noticed petrol powered Hilux trucks so far.

    Don't believe so - there was a little chatter last year about potential development cost etc. I guess with them having the Lexus engines available it's an economical option.

    I wish they offered a diesel Tacoma in the states, or one of those landcruiser troopy’s they sell in Australia.

    I wish we could get the larger Toyo's down here. Pretty much anything over a certain weight has to be converted to right hand drive to be legal in NZ (like the diesel Rams I believe would be overweight). To give you an idea of our market, the biggest selling vehicle in NZ in 2017 was the Ford Ranger, probably 95 percent of which would be diesel. Petrol is expensive in NZ (about USD 5.80 per US gallon) so diesels are always a blessing. Even my old Toyota Corolla is a diesel - not the quickest but very economical to get to work!

    Does it imply that it is OK Sainz didn't stop because the Pugly has poor rear vision?

    without additional evidence (damage to either party or video/further witnesses) then this is likely about the right outcome
