A laptop failure means that the only news from the team today was over the phone, but what news it was.
Team Saluki are now officially placed 4th overall. This is our highest place in te Challenge to date and and a brilliant result.
Team Saluki are 4th. Excellent.
Did you know that you can follow the event either live or in 'replays' by clicking the following link:
Follow the Saluki
Click "Todays Race live" if the rally is on or to rerun previous stages, make your selection from "See previous stages".
This will open a popup window where you can select the teams you wish to follow, to a maximum of four teams. Saluki is vehicle 208, so in the first box, enter 208, then any fromthe following list to see their progress at the same time. Press play for the reruns or sit and watch the live progress (if the vehicle is running).
It sounds complicated, but after the first try, its really easy to setup.
Have fun and thanks for your support.
