EXE-TC & TUTHILLS WORK TOGETHER TO GAIN EXCELLENT POSITIONS IN THE EAST AFRICAN SAFARI CLASSIC 0


Phil Hervin - EXE-TCS engineer - was with the Tuthills support team and attended the Kenya Airways East African Safari Classic Rally 2007 as their damper engineer. The tough conditions ensured that there was never a dull moment. The dramas centered on Marcy who struck problems in the second section, the infamous Usambara Mountains, when he hit a rocky bank and broke his front suspension. He tried to drive out of the stage but failed. Consequently, he had to wait for the other competitors to finish the section and for his service crew to drive twenty-two kilometers in to mend the Porsche. Even with this set back Marcy set the fastest times on both the first and third section that day and received an enormous cheer when he drove over the finish ramp, on arriving after nearly all the other cars. Marcy fell back from second to fourth overall to the benefit of two other Porsche drivers, Frederic Dor and Geoff Fielding who occupied second and third places behind Waldegård. Yet another Porsche 911, that of Paul-Eric Jarry, was placed fifth. Final positions for the Tuthill team Pos.
