2013 La Carrera Panamericana Day 4 Stage 5, Doug Mockett & Angelica Fuentes 1954 Olds 88
This was a particularly difficult section with sand, gravel and moisture on the road. The big Oldsmobile had a tough time handling with the lighter Studebakers. But the car performed flawlessly and only needed gasoline to be ready for day 5





Carrera Panamericana 2007 Day 7 - Stage 1
La Bufa. For me the best stage since it has a little of everything: good asphalt/bad asphalt, technical parts/very fast parts, nice flat lands/deep clifs. Great combination!
