Looks to me like it's been designed to give the Hummer a run for it's money

Another 6 month R&D exercise though, so just like HRC let's hope it stands the test

The earlier version was black and white without the subtitles, so a great improvement

Thats the plan but the organisation has told me no alcohol for now on pain of disqualification, so my plan is to wait until rest day when they relax the rules a bit.

On a more serious note: No 69, I would have gotten that girl photographed posing on her bike, that would have been a better marketing move.
