Breslau Rally 2013: Trucks Part 2

This is the third of four posts of photo albums from the Breslau Rally 2013.

This second post of our Breslau Rally trucks photo series contains our favorite truck photos from from Days 5-8 of the rally. The photos are arranged in rough chronological order, and Tatra fans will find some of our best photos of the Svoboda Tatra Team.

Within the first 10km of the start of the 210km Special Stage on Day 5, the Puch GE 280 of Martin Heidrich and Gary Hagen rolled over on its side on a muddy section of the stage.

Several cars passed, while they looked for a way to turn the car over.

they stopped to rescue the Puch before continuing on their way.

Despite the time lost turning the car over, they won the stage in the truck category, and even arrived before the cars.

The Special Stage on Day 6 was shorter than on previous days, but very fast, except in a few places.

We didn’t get any pictures of the race on Day 7 due to the long service drive from Drawsko Pomorskie to Zagan. The last set is from Stage 8, which started from Zagan.

There will be one more photo set from the rally before we end the series. It looks like we won’t be able to finish it this week due to the holiday in Switzerland, but it should be ready sometime early next week.
