|Breslau TICKER: The trucks started in the race, spectacular scenes.|
At 03:00 pm the trucks started in the prologue...after the cars destroyed partly the course, stuck in the mud, stuck on a hill, winching, destroyed first engines.... the "typical" Breslau-theme, haha!
Next to the stage we are listening to the incredible sound of the Unimog-Turbos... Whilst the - especially late - cars had their problems with the more and more muddy stage, the trucks are "flying" through the track...
A "star" is back: Famous German rallydriver und former Breslau-winner Udo Heidenreich (Mercedes Unimog), well known from German TV, is back after 2 years absence. "It was a hard time. I watched the race online and in Facebook, wanted to race, but no time, no truck.... It was horrible... Now I´m back, can´t wait to start, can´t wait to push the pedal!"
The field is definetely dominated by Mercedes Unimog Trucks, but we also see some Magirus, one Ginaf (!), some MAN Kat, IFA and a historic "Saurer" from Switzerland - which is not only a oldtimer, no, this truck ins completely stock! "We want to have fun, we want to be different" the crew reported before the start... We will see...
