All the PR money is going into the development of the truck!
Same as last year. At the start of the race if you put money on the Toyota even finishing, people would have laughed at you. Maybe even have had you commited to an asylum.
Giniel came second!
Some might say he was lucky as other, much faster, competitors fell by the way. No! He was consistant and the truck was reliable!
What I find funny is that all the press you read, the Toyotas are not even mentioned as contenders! Yet Nasser and Carlos in brand new unproven buggies are definate possibilities for the podium.
Glynn's cars have never been the fastest. But they always sounded the best!
The banshee Factory Nissan V6s and the V8 Toyotas are crowd favourites!
