Amelie II Blog - day 5 – 25th June
Pilot Craig writes: Amelie II obviously is not a race car and she showed her displeasure at being abused down a motorway the previous day, by displaying alarming signs of breaking into pieces. Diagnosed as an impending driveshaft failure by a friendly Citroen mechanic, she was nursed into Avignon by her pilots and to their amazement had yet again claimed a stage win. Mainly due to the other pilots not telling them where the mid afternoon rest stop was, so they just tootled to the end at a gentle pace. Being magnanimous winners from the previous day, it was agreed that the pilots of the Citroen Tarte, John and mark could claim a stage win as they had checked in before the Amelie crew.
