Friday was all about getting to Prague for the remaining teams. Thank you to Andrew and Richard from Grunting Wolfpack for offering their car before they scrapped it. We have to congratulate Lewis, Steve, Ryan and Aaron from Jurassic Prague who had been having troubles with their safari themed Jeep since arriving in St Omer on the very first day of the Rally. Despite offers of replacement cars, they successfully made it to Prague in their beloved Jeep with lots of calamities and fun along the way! Continue reading →
