Impressive; of course… I prefer to drink the barrels than to charge for them…– laughs afterwards the deputy general director of wines Georges Dubœuf; whose grandson he is.
-The car suffered a lot of damage; but fortunately we did not. The mechanics gave the car dead but took 5 out of it and the teams lent us parts so we could get back on track for the next day’s stage. Unfortunately this new day turned into a hassle because we had a breakdown in the desert with no means ofjournaltimemunication…followed by a breakdown in the middle of the night that deprived us of our headlights…We ended the day on set but still we are in the race! »
