Leg 4 - Competition Heating Up in the Top 10

Driving with a cracked seal, U.S. Team Amy Lerner and Tricia Reina #107 maintains an impressive top position at ninth place in an international field of 150 teams, making all of their CPs. The course today was fairly intermediate but came with a few challenges. "The area we were in today was completely new to us. The weather was very hazy, and it was difficult to see, but we took our time and felt good about the choices we made," noted Lerner. Visibility is important to accurately read the detailed map features.

The top teams will be in serious competition mode the next few days to close the gaps as the event weeds out contenders. The rally is known for wearing down teams as they have now competed sunrise to sunset for multiple days.
