Africa Eco Race: Day 2
Stage 2 of 12 is now over. Today's stage upped the Special Stage distance to 318 km and saw Jacky Loomans Nissan improve significantly.
In 7th and more than 11 minutes back of the leader on Day 1, Loomans and his Nissan proved much stronger on Day 2, crossing the finish line in 3rd place for the day, only 5 minutes back of the Stage 2 winner and moving up to 4th overall, again now only 5 minutes behind the overall leader Jerome Pelichit and his Bowler.
Jean Louis Schlesser is having a down event for him thus far and sits in 8th overall after two stages some 57 minutes adrift...
