Even The Best Made Plans....

Racing can be and is a very challenging sport but the La Carrera Panamericana takes it to an all new level, one that is well documented for allowing drivers to get comfortable for just a split second before it jumps out of hiding and bites you square on the ass. The good news is in these cases the drivers escaped with their lives.

Many thanks to Coop for the use of these self explanatory photos.

The first photo thanks to Michael Emery of Lucha Libre Racing is the bridge mentioned by the #278 Merceded Benz Bio Fuel team that took out their clutch pedal assembly.

The #88 Volvo piloted by David Gussack from the U.S.A.

This was what the #375 Sunbeam Tiger piloted by Miles Jones looked like when I last saw it in San Miguel de Allende.

This is what it looked like yesterday.

This is what it looks like now.

I do hate the accidents but I sure miss to be there.
And what are the results. I cant find them anywhere.

Believe me Ralf, I'm doing everything to get them.

I was wondering if you know where to find the gps tracking for the race or the daily results.I'm the Apple Farmers neighbor. I asked you about them last year and now here I am again looking for info. Thanks

Here is the GPS site but I can't seem to find it in English. This site is very slow loading so be patient.
