But the adventure didn’t end there.

After some rest after the finish line, the car was simply driven home, i.e. the racing car was not transported back to Riverside, California on a trailer, but simply returned to its starting point by public road. It couldn’t be the last sight, since the bodywork was not washed after the 1,600 km race pace on dirt roads.

The team manager was Curt Leduc, who has a lot of experience in off-road rallying, and a total of 4 pairs of drivers took turns in the racing car: Brad and Byam Lovell (Lovell Racing), Jason Hutter and Paul Blangstead (Fire Guys Racing), Loren Healy and Eric Davis (Fun-Haver Off -Road) and Andy and Danny Brown (ARB)
