rally / olympus rally 2012

Yet another challenging Olympus rally for the Demon Rally Team. We DNF'ed the national rally on stage 3 after losing a wheel (to be fair, we treated it poorly before it ran away). Came back for the night stages and the second regional, but got two flats on our nemesis stage: Nahwatzel. Drove out of the stage and changed one after the finish. Made the decision to save an expensive wheel and waited to borrow a spare. Unfortunately, earned a big penalty for late check in that my co-driver charm couldn't get us out of. Live and learn, I guess. Day 2 we ended up 24th overall and 3rd in Gp5 after penalties, but would have been 8th overall and winning G5 without them even with two flats on a 20 mile stage. Not too shabby, really.
