Hi everyone,

Sorry for the delay in today's update, but I've only just got back to our hotel in Portugal. I was in hospital for a few hours after our accident - but all's fine. They just wanted to do some precautionary checks because I had some pain in my back and up round my neck. 
Thankfully everything's okay. They gave me the full MOT and signed me off, so that's good!

After Friday's frustrations, I was really enjoying driving the Citroen C3 WRC today - really enjoying the rally, as I have done, in fact, apart from the punctures yesterday afternoon. But then I just turned into a fast left a little bit late, missed my line and got onto the loose gravel on the outside of the corner. And that was the end of that.

The consequences were pretty severe, because we ended up in some big trees, and the car certainly doesn't look so pretty (it will not surprise you to learn that we won't be out again tomorrow). I have to say thanks, in fact - to Citroen for building such a strong car, and to the medical staff who looked after me so well.

It may seem strange to say it now, but we can move ahead from this event with positive thoughts. I've been like a scratched record saying this, I know, but I really was having fun driving the car here in Portugal. The feeling was excellent. So while we take a few aches and pains away from here instead of any points, I also have a positive feeling about how the C3 WRC is on gravel.

That said, if there is a God of averages, he's going to have to start doing something for us soon, because the last three or four rallies have really gone against us, for one reason or another. 
Today was my mistake, of course, so I'll take it on the chin and we'll move forwards to Sardinia.

Thanks, as always, for your support,

Kris

Hi everyone,

It’s probably for the best that I don’t say exactly how I’m feeling after the first day in Portugal. But you can pretty much work it out for yourselves, I hope. In case you haven’t seen the times or the footage, we got two punctures on consecutive stages in the second loop this afternoon. I’ve no idea where I got them or how I picked them up. No idea at all.

To be honest, I thought our rally was over at the end of the Ponte de Lima stage (the final gravel stage of the day). We had a total of 120km of road section to do and still two superspecials, and three working tyres. So we did the two short stages with the left-rear on the rim, as you may have seen, and then we were able to make it back. If you’d told me at the end of Ponte de Lima that we’d be able to pull that off, I wouldn’t have believed you.

So we’re still in. But it’s frustrating, with so many others having issues; you’d like to think that once in a while you’d get a clean day but the last three rallies really haven’t gone my way. 
The frustration is compounded, in a way, by the fact that I was really, really enjoying driving the car today. I was able to have a good rhythm, and good pace; we were leading the rally, after all. I would say it’s probably the first time I’ve felt as comfortable as this in the Citroen C3 WRC.

That’s really positive, I know, and yes, we’re still there, but with the slow runs through the superspecial we dropped a fair few positions so I think we’ll end up being second on the road tomorrow, which is far from ideal. The first two stages of the morning in particular are going to clean quite a lot, I’d say, so it could be a long day ahead. We’ll just keep trying; there was plenty of chaos today and maybe a bit more tomorrow could give us a break.

Thanks, as always, for your support,

Kris
