This is where the fun starts!. 150km of nothing much.. other than of course magnificent skies and clouds that look painted on. Relatively smooth to start but that’s set  to change as the Route Book warns of ‘stony’ and ‘rutted mud’

We soon learn to keep a lid on the speed – annoying with a 3.8 litre ‘E’ type engine, At 3-40mph you come across big stones, big ruts and teeth-rattling corrugated sections of track very quickly – at 60-70mph I don’t see how you avoid any of them… and you cant always see them until you are on top of them
