Our friends over at Mats Hammarlund Racing who built several cars for this and past La Carrera Panamericana's had this to say about their cars. (Still conflicting reports but at least everyone is trying their best.)
Here is a short race report.
First day Stig had a flat tire on a stage and spun of. He changed the tire fast but lost some time. Later that day we had some fuel pump problems and lost some more time.
I am not sure of the placings for all the days but after the third day:
Jorge Pedrero third
Gabriel Perez fourth
Pedro Garcia (in our little Volvo!) seventh
Today Gabriel lost an engine so I would assume our cars are fourth, fifth and sixth after today.
Paco and Araceli were doing really well (fourth overall) but unfortunately spun of yesterday.
Yesterday Beihartz and Blomqviat were first and second for that day. Sometimes one were a few seconds faster and othertimes the other. Very even. Beilhartz is running impressively fast.
3 more days to go!
