Re: PRIMM Photos are up now
Thanks. As always, great pics and great follow up!
I got to play at Visual Checkpoint 5 this year. Very interesting to be able to see the cars coming up the lakebed, drive all the way around us, and then come back up through us and back down the lakebed.
There is nothing like watching a Trophy-Truck going balls-out on a dry lake bed, and passing people on the highway! [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]
First couple of times through the Optima Tropy Truck (Smith) looked like he had a whomping lead. Too bad he had to put it on its side else I think he would have made it with time to spare! And no one seriously blew the corner this year near our check!
Ended up being a storage unit or a tool giver for a broken bypass shock on a 1600, another flat tire on a 1600, and a very tired Mark Post and Co-Driver when they had a flat at night and the air bottle didn't work as planned (good thing they had a manual backup method).
I had a few issues with rule-making and some other logistical items, but overall it was a good race!
