Day Three and the Lotus continued it’s campaign – making the drive to the East of Perth City and into the quaint country town of Toodyay.
Long loose surfaced roads at speed certainly made for some edge of the seat action, the temperature today was in the high 30’s so not only was the heat from the sun peaking, the heat in the race for the stage wins was also sky high!
Unfortunately there was one temperature that was high, and it ended the day early for the Lotus. Unfortunately the boys broke a drive belt in the later stages of Toodyay and had to retire the car to the service park for the afternoon to get it repaired to be able to drive it back to Perth. It was a massive shame as the car had overall lead for the last 3 days up until then… And even during the second half of the stage in which the car was at a significantly reduced power level (due to no drive to the Harrop Supercharger, and the coolant temp off the dial) the boys still managed to place second for that stage!
Precision driving by Peter Rullo and Navigated by Jimmy Marquet the boys pushed hard right until the end. Mike (WA Racing Developments) and the team from Lotus Perth were quick to get the car turned around in the Service Park (in a near 40 degree heat tarmac carpark) so that the car could be driven back to Perth and compete on the final day.
These have taken some time so I do apologise for such a long delay between these videos, but they are worth it 🙂
