I can maybe see why CD's swap wouldn't end in a penalty. Both motors were in the race, not a new one out of the crate. It's not like he gets the advantage of a fresh one.

That would be Bluebull, and he may be catching a little shut-eye about now, rest day and all.

If that's the way they are going to interpret the rules, I see some new strategies that could be played in the future. Can of worms, IMHO.

We asked Robb from Rally PanAm a few (dozen) pages ago. He said the ASO had them the first year in SA as part of the entry, the second year it was an option you could buy. Now they're just offered to Malle Moto competitors, apparently.

So Pyn says that KTM are on a 3 year plan to produce a lighter Rally bike - so are they in or out for the future.

With his comments on the commercialisation and developing enormity of the event it seems quite unlikely

Anyone know what neck protector 'Shoestring & Prayer' Luchesse is wearing in this video?
Almost looks like a donut the car guys use. Another 11th-hour acquisition?

Listened to Pyn - great interview, but nothing on the mysterious penalty disappearances

Cyril is still showing second 9.26 down, should be starting 11th today accpording to what's up there now, so today may be the day he making the move?
