Nothing better than words from the Navigator himself, a disappointing end with Tim and Adam rolling their car, but the guys are both okay - the car however will need some work to get it rally ready again.

Team MV Solar At Alpine Rally 2017 - Day 3 Update

Stages Ss10, 11 and 12 are now complete. The car had no brakes for the last 10km's of Ss10 so some running repairs were necessary before Ss11 which may have resulted in a late penalty. Ss11 was completed without incident. Further fuel issues were encountered on the Speedway circuit with the car stalling, but Michael managed to get it started to finish the section. At the last official update the team were running 13th but not yet clarified if that includes Ss12 - the Speedway.

Team MV Solar At Alpine Rally 2017 - Day 2 Update

What a day!!! Challenging all round by all accounts - slippery roads with varying surfaces has proved challenging with quite a few competitors sliding off - looks like there could be a few DNF'S at the end of today. The MV Solar team are motoring along and had moved to 20th position at end of Ss3 this morning but the 1600 while mechanically travelling ok, has been a fuel guzzler - in fact running out at the beginning of Ss4. Dennis and Kerry got to them and refueled but were caught up in the Ss4 queue and had to wait it out before they could head to the spectator point. Dangerous conditions resulted in the cancellation of Ss4 and then Ss7 and Ss8, however Ss9 has now been completed and the crews are calling it a day in preparation for more action tomorrow.
