Marcel still in the race, despite suspension problems!

Broken blades on the rear axel and the next stage on the front axel caused time delay for the truck team. Provisionairy repairs with wooden blocks took lot's of time, and required the team to drive carefully throught the last dune sections of stage 6. With the beams fully on they managed to attack the dunes by night however, and they finished just before the time limit. In stage 7 again suspension problems occured on the front axel, and this has made the team drop a few places more in the overall ranking.

After the marathon stage it will be clear what will be the new overall ranking, but for now finishing seems to be the main target.

Video: During the rest day the team was able to refresh and fix what needed to be fixed. The foorage shows how the bivac looks and gives a sneek peek at the camping facilities.
