|Dakar Rally 2013: 6th SS a "fun day" with great results for Eric Vigouroux.|
For the first time since the start of the Dakar 2013, French-American Eric Vigouroux enjoyed driving his Trophy-Truck of the "EVR Racing Team" on the sixth stage of the Dakar Rally 2013.
"It was a varied stage. We were able to take the Trophy-Truck to its best, and we started to see the Minis, the SMG Buggies. That was a great indicator that we had the right pace. We also crossed some steep dunes, which was the main problem we had at the beginning of the race. I am glad we accomplished the 7th best time of the stage" said Vigouroux after the stage.
"Then, we attacked the second part of the race in the best shape and confirmed out place. The only problem was that 30 km before the finish line we had a vapor lock as it was too hot. We had to stop four times to fix the fuel circuit to lower the temperature. I think it was only the fuel that we took at a station since we are using Avgas since the race started."
