brief Olympus Rally debriefing

Thursday, April 24th, 2008

stage 1: 13th overall national, 1st overall regional. fantastic. a couple late note calls, but nothing too scary.

stage 2: lost it on a right into a left, tried to correct, but it spun too far. met a dirt bank on the front driver side corner, which increased the velocity of the spin. sent the passenger side corner deep into the dirt, flipping the car on it’s top. spun another 180 on the top and came to a rest. destroyed pretty good. to make matters worse, the video recorder got pulled off the mount and did not record the roll.

we’ve already had several generous offers for assistance. rest assured, our rally career is not over until the money runs out. keep checking here for some ways you might be able to help.

look for us out on stage again soon!

new sponsor!
