Decrease temperatures gave the slim and twisty gravel phases a distinct attribute, with tyre administration and technique an influential issue over the weekend.
 

Friday’s six phases provided a consultant glimpse of what was to return with highs and lows from the outset.

Firstly we had a retirement on SS5 after I made a mistake which resulted in two of the tyres coming off their rims. We solely had one spare so couldn’t proceed.

Then, on Saturday, we broken the radiator on SS10, which overheated the engine. We couldn’t repair the problem so needed to deliver the automotive again to service, the place the staff determined to not proceed to keep away from any additional harm to the engine. A troublesome weekend.”
