World Run II / Reports
The map shows the position of which the pictures for the day are taken (if any). The start and finish markers are placed at the first and last valid registered position. This is not nessesary the actual start and finish position, if GSM or GPS signals was not available.
Distance today: 0.0 km (Accumulated: 30631.0 km)
Elapsed time: 00:00:00
[The support-car refused to start in the morning, with a 85km streatch out to the startingpoint. All day spend repairing the car and tending to logistics].
- I guess the above says it all.
Once more there are troubles w. the supportcar. It then makes it a habit in nearly all the contries I have run through in South America so far: Only in Equador there's wasnt days lost due to support-car repair ! Argentina, Chile, Peru and now Colombia - mechanical bonanza' ;-)
But in all fairness... Its both a quite long distance not only to run but also for the supportcars to follow me at. In total nearly 10 000km across this continent; so who wouldnt expect a few breakdowns of the cars !
As a helpfull person in Argentina said when the supportcar number one (this is the fourth supportcar since the start in Punta Arenas 11months ago) broke down w. a blown gasket and a leaking piston: "You are lucky that its the legs which are holding up and the car that breaks down". Very True :-))
