Great weather, our thoughts are already in Paris. Smoke came out of the motor. Oil everywhere. The oil pipe burst. 2 gallons of oil all over the car on a narrow mountain road. Rally over????
We jumped out of the car, stopped the motor and saw the disaster. Navi Schmidt burned his arm by trying to stop the oil. Emergency repair with the help of our fantastic sweepmechanic Andy. We lost 90 minutes knowing, that there are still 85 kilometers ahead of us with 2 speed tests and only 70 minutes to go. Marco and Max gave us oil to fill up and we performed a hell race to make the time. We never give up and made it with only 40 seconds left.
Another drama on our P2P adventure which went well. Still at 1st in our class we arrived in Budapest, welcomed by Rauschi and Mr. Horvath, managing director of ROTHENBERGER Hungary.
The rest day in Budapest was a full repair day at an Opel dealer and Green Eagle is ready to attack again with fresh Dunlop racing tyres.
We keep you informed on our trip tomorrow to Slovenia.
