Dramatic Retirements.

Car 12 retired from the rally afterend of leg one when the car was driving
to the parc ferme. The crew then requested to drive in the Super Rally for
legs 2 & 3. The car was loaded onto a recovery truck and on its way to the
garage, the car and tow truck both caught fire as a result of a fule leak.

As a result, the car was completely burned to ashes. In the same fire, all
the spare parts for car no. 8 were destroyed in the fire, reslting in this
crew's retirement as well as they had no spare parts anymore.


The super special was held in Lubiri on 9/9 and was attended by estimated
crowd of 6.000. Leg 2 was well attended to, with big crowds following the
rally from Kampala. A group of 10 Zambians flew in to support Munna and some
people from Rwanda and Kenya have also been sited in the crowds.
