This is the fourth and final of our posts of photo albums from the Breslau Rally 2013.

In this last post of photos from the 2013 Breslau Rally, we’ve selected some of our favorites from throughout the race.

We didn’t get pictures every day because of the liaisons and and other service needs, but we had a front seat for the action on Days 4, 5 and 6 as we were able to ride along in one of the press cars.

This photo of Sylvain and Gaby got left out of the team photo album, but we found it when sorting through the photos for this post. It was taken before they had trouble with the transmission on Day 4:
