This morning we left Guanajuato and headed towards Leon. Five cars crashed during the race today, but fortunately, no one was seriously injured. One of the cars was in our class driven by Miguel Granados and navigated by Ricardo Puente, who shared the podium with us every night, with exception of the first day because we were licking our wounds from breaking and not finishing that day.
When El Platillo Volador came into service, the car report was very good, no need to do anything but sit in a plaza parking lot flanked by American chain stores.
Here are some photos of our friends and what crewing looks like.
The Swedes, Tommy and Anders
These guys are very experienced crew in La Carrera Panamericana. They have helped us out on many occasions, including today when we showed up to the super sunny and hot paved lot with out a shade tent and carved out a little spot of shade under a tree for EPV from their already staked out spot! Thanks, Julio and Anders!
EPV rolled in without a to do list! Woo Hoo!
Both cars made it to Aguascalientes and there was some serious chillaxing poolside!
Second in class today! Tomorrow, La Congoja, La Bufa and finally Zacatecas!
