|OiLibya Rally of Tunisia: Vigouroux/Winocq ready for a new adventure.|
Adrenaline was the key of the day. The excitement for Super Special was enormous in Tunis and many people gathered on the beach under a beautiful sun waiting for the race which was transformed in a big parade with all bikes and cars of the rally. The Super Special had to be canceled for safety reasons due to the public in the race track.
But this didn´t allow Eric Vigouroux and Alex Winocq from getting the best of it. "Today we warmed the car up and checked that everything works fine. We also have verified that the communication devices in our helmets work well, and that our seats are in a correct position. From this point of view, this small moment on the beach was really useful because it allows us to prepare for the big start" Vigouroux told.
As the Super Special was cancelled, the results will no longer determine tomorrow´s start order so it will be done with the numbers of the cars only and the EVR 301 crew will start second, right after Leonid Novitsky.
Tomorrow, the rally´s first stage will take the crew from Tunis to Douz. The day will be composed of 586 kilometers, from which 180 are the selective section. Fast roads and some technical passages next to the mountains will give them all the action.
