Well, for us the longest and difficult stage of rally "Sonangol Africa Eco Race" also came to the end. So actively organizers prepared competitors to this stage, so the previous stage was difficult, that all concentrated and prepared for the worst. Prepare for the worst - it is always correct: if it happens, then you're ready, and if not, you will do everything better than you could. Trucks started, just behind Schlesser, in a sequence that was very favorable to KAMAZ. Today our crew could appreciate in full rivals’ professionalism - in the long distance, on the heavy sands.
The position was favorable, guys understood that gradually they would overtake rivals, but were cautious, taught by yesterday's experience. They followed tracks. They caught up with Elizabeth before CP1, and then in one of the sand boxes guys overtook Tomecek. Try not to make mistakes. At one point, there was only the leader of the race Jean-Louis Schlesser ahead.
