Ha ha. I just saw this. JayBo1 is right. My bike seized up on start of Day 2 and I couldn't even make the start. Needed new cam shaft. God knows what the 2 further hours were for (as if a 4 day penalty wasn't enough). I picked up penalties for speeding later which seems harsh in a motorbike race. Crashed on last day after launching off a lip. My race was ended when the Petrobras Mistubishi rally car made same mistake and rolled, right over my bike. Bike now sick. Depending on your point of view, I was very lucky. The only reason I wasn't with my bike was that I'd gone to recover a bit of fairing.
