Report #13 Termas Rio Hondo > Rosario
January 16(Local time), Jun called me when he was on the road from the liaison to the bivouac today. Liaison was so long and total moving distance was 1000km over but he was so fine and I felt relieved.
The course of today was the mountain road as same as yesterday. The road was narrow and the surface was so hard. Jun saw 5 or 6 cars were out of course and some cars clashed to the stones , wall of rock and even the gate sign of the ranch. Advanced technique needed for the drivers who run at high speed.
Jun had no trouble but his pace did not up due to some of slippy places in the first half of the course. Jun was a bit nervous because his car got upside down in this place 2 years ago that was the one of reason that he could not up his pace. Though the camion had flat tire and the buggy slid off the course in front of him. Then he got a clear view and succeeded to have his own pace. After the middle point of the course, Jun ran at high speed and finished the race without troubles.
Just before the last stage of the rally tomorrow, Jun told me it was so long from start to here. He was worried in poor physical condition in the first half of the rally this year. Though he made minimalize the time gap despite some accidents happened in the long run to here. Hope he does his best till the last tomorrow.

Report #12 Salta > Termas Rio Hondo
January 15(Local time), the course of today’s SS was short, wide or narrow and it was like an ordinary off road. The camion ran between cars and passing them was hard work but the entire race was smooth. Except Jun derailed the course to get off the muddy road at the last. He devoted to support the team mate and finished the race without any troubles.
When the today’s stage ended, the time gap between the team mate was 5 minute and rest of the stages are two. Jun said, the courses are not so difficult. They can make one-two finish if they keep their position for sure. The time gap between them and the 3rd is 23 hours. Because a competitive teams changed their class to modified cars and no enemies in Jun’s class this year. If their cars broke down, everything will be lost and it is going to be a battle against their self. Jun got a thrilling climax and he was feeling uneasy about the time gap between the team mate. However Jun is believing if he tries to rest of the stages steadily, the good result will take care of itself. Show your support for Jun till the end.
