WORKING ON THE CARS
Today we spent the day working on the cars, it still lacks a lot of details to finish them before the start.
We have also devoted much time to label them, because they had to be in the boat in late November in the French port of Le Havre, there was no time to do it in Europe.
Fortunately we are located in luxurious facilities to tune vehicles. We have been allowed to work in JPRacing competition premises, which is the greatest race car infrastructure throughout South America. Because in our team we have three well-known and famous Argentine pilots, and form part of the structure of competition JPRacing, we can use this complex as if we were in our house. They have much room to work, a painting and lettering shop, welding, mechanical handling and turning, all spare parts and material, a restaurant, a SPA with gym included, and a great pool. I had never seen such a place like this for car competition facilities. Gracias "Legion Argentina "
On the other hand, the main concern right now here is the fuel supplier strike. At the moment it is very difficult to find gasoline (which is what we use in our buggies), and there is only availability of Diesel or Gas. We assume that this will be solved before the race, because it affects all of Argentina, and it would be a major problem. And I thought that the big surprises and chaos was only part of the African Dakar!
Tomorrow, if we have gas, we will go to test cars on a dirt track that is near JPRacing.

Aixó sembla l'esquelet de un ratolí dinosauri.
Aprofitant la comunicació que aixeca el Dakar, tothom tè algo per revindicar, esperem que aixó de la benzina no vagi a mès. Tindrem que pensar en fer un cotxe solar per la próxima i segur que intentarien tapar el sol.
Quina sort poder treballar en aquestas instal.lacions, es tot un luxe, t'en recordes del garatge de l'hotel de Lisboa la nit avans de les verificacions del 2007 ?
Una forta abraçada.
