This kind of rally is always too short, to enjoy it properly and to make real progress. A good beginning and then my first exit !! A too optimistic note (last year it was wet so we arrived slower and didn’t notice it), lack of experience, the gearbox didn’t downshift smoothly… I can give several arguments, it will not change anything. That’s why Rally is tough, it’s not easy to build up your confidence.
Well done to Nicolas Ciamin and my friends Bruno Riberi & Florian Haut-Labourdette for their speed. They have much more experience than me but still, the gap between us on those roads looks impossible to overcome !
