OiLibya Rally: Problems for Vigouroux/Winocq continued in SS5.

Information from Sunday is a bit sketchy as the Eric Vigouroux and Alex Winocq are at the bivouac at Oubari, half way through the endurance stage. From the result it is clear the Chevrolet Trophy Truck has encountered some kind of problem as Eric is now two hours down on the lead. The question is why. Press and assistance team members were not permitted in the bivouac because it is a two day marathon-stage so we await more information.

Eric Vigouroux and Alex Winocq were ninth in the stage having started 17th after yesterdays problems but their time has slipped due to something which occured between 370 k m and 403 km. What we have been told is that the Trophy Truck has suffered an oil hose prolem which may be related to yesterday's power steeering hose issue and also alternator problems.

However, Pro-System racoing are definately still in the race and after tomorrows 360 km second half of the endurance stage, the team will be able to speak directly to Eric and Alex to find out what is happening.
