2011 Rallye de Paris / Roxton Rumbles 1st overall 968 Open Light Brianne Corn / Jeremy Rowland
No clutch, no alternator, no gauges, no rally computer, no problem. We took a hard hit to the bottom of the car on the first stage with monster truck sized ruts. After which we lost the gauges, the alternator stopped charging and the EM went into limp mode limiting the RPMs to about 4500. Despite this we held on to the lead until SS4 when the clutch fork came loose and was caught in the pressure plate resulting in a dnf for the morning rally. We were able to correct the fork issue but the slave cylinder was beyond repair. We ran the second rally without the ability to disengage the clutch and on battery power only, starting the car in gear at the line. And we still finished first overall.

Rallying a Ford Aspire
Accidentally went off-roading in a 1996 Ford Aspire 5 door. I thought one road would lead me to another, but it ended up taking me on some pretty rough terrain. This is only a small bit of the action. The location is Coulterville, California, on Jackass Ridge I believe (Cuneo Rd). A few notes on the car- Stock all around, 1.3L and 5 speed, and crappy little half-worn 155/80/13 tires that are NOT made for dirt (These: http://www.pneusfacil.com.br/images/others/profile/Wanli/pneu%20wanli%20S10 15%20pic1.jpg ).
