    whichever team just left aktau in a black fiat panda and drove past us, you are a disgrace to the rally and yourselves. Does it look like we're havin 250 a barbecue with a tow rope on the front and our hazard lights on in the middle of the desert?
  • Norfolkin'chance
    Location Unknown 10:55 on 07-08-2007
