    See that plume of steam pouring out of the front grille? That is not good news! Team 122 were forced to stop when their Studebaker Champion dumped the water from its radiator all over the road! Had it happened between stages they may have been able to fix it without incurring any penalty but sadly that wasn't the case. A breakdown on the Sierra de Lobos stage meant big penalties knocking team 122 all the way down to 20th place.

    They may be down but they're not out. The car was transported to the overnight halt to be repaired ready for the next days racing. With 8 minutes now separating them from the race leader a win is looking unlikely but, with a tough race like the carrera, anything is possible. Every car that finishes can claim a victory and our guys are not about to give up!

    The studebaker 1,2,3 has well and truly been shaken up, while team 139 remain in the lead, team 115 have dropped to 4th place. Porsche 911's (cars 556 and 557) are now fighting over 2nd and 3rd place, so the race is really opening up.
