Kalahari Rally 2021: Stage 2, A Change of Heart

The folks from WESTx1000 are back at it, sending live daily reports from the Kalahari Rally 2021. 
Begin Press Release: 

Stage 2: A Change of Heart
As the Kalahari Rally Travels to Its Edge, Racers Must Choose to Leap? or Back Off 
An ominous blood red sun had set the stage for another difficult day. The route was rumored to be even trickier to navigate than the former? (Something to look forward to") Better yet, a four-plus-hour liaison awaited everyone from the numbered vehicles to the support caravans with two draining options for passage for the latter group: one which is over paved, established roads, but requires almost nine hours of travel, after completing. The alternative ? and the only choice for contenders ? was less than half the driving time but was pockmarked like an oily teen who liked to pick when they?re nervous. To say the journey was jarring would be an understatement. Miss a turn and end up in Botswana before noticing the little arrow had veered off the blue guideline. There are some positives to commencing a rally at a punishing degree. If nothing else, the more difficult an experience is, all others thereafter can feel relatively less taxing. In some cases, this evokes a feeling of empowerment, so that the racers can navigate their way through any shitstorm unbothered. And it?s possible the slimmer lineup might help relieve some of the head-to-head challenges so athletes can focus more on their roadbooks than their rivals.

From a bird’s eye view, Special Stage Two is a distinct loop, the DSS and ASS only miles apart. But this was actually the final point to point until Stage Five, where the event will endure a lengthy voyage back towards the final bivouac, again in Mafikeng. As far away as the fifth special, or Mafikeng, might seem, for the competitors who were forced to channel patience at the start of the special ? when complications delayed the launch ? the day felt like a millennia, dragging on for hours. It’s still too soon to say, but perhaps a pattern is emerging. And on one of the lengthier hauls this week, it guaranteed no less than 12 hours on the road for most participants. News which was expectedly hard to digest. But again, as is rally.
When thumbs were (finally) set to upright position, race vessels cued in reversed class order: Cars then SXS then Motos. Terence Marsh #308 kicked down the ?gate,? smashing the gas pedal of his tricked-out Nissan to wring out as much horsepower as possible in an attempt to stay ahead of the group. A feat which he and co-driver Riaan Greyling managed until the fuel stop. Alas, their reign did not last long, possibly a result of whatever stole their missing front corner panel and headlight. Their colleagues in #304 took the lead and held it for the remaining kilometers, but not without an epic battle for the Winner’s Circle. The two cars never let up, attacking each other like two angry bees simultaneously throwing themselves at one another midair trying...
