Hey Jean-Georges, what happened to Seamus -- do you know?
It's not clear from the results: Seamus has no split for SS9 -- but appears to have finished, dropping from 1st OA to 18th? -- and then disappers from the overall results entirely after SS10? I'm confused because I saw him on both SS9 and SS10, and he was setting the pace.
>Has anyone heard anything about the drivers who were injured?
I wasn't at the rally but can report on the crew of the green Saab (#892) since I'm partners in the car. James Fox is recovering at the Westchester County Medical Center where he was airlifted from the rally. His left ankle is broken and he has various bumps and bruises but is otherwise well. Codriver Charles Paulsen suffered bumps and bruises as well but was able to get home to Pennsylvania on his own.
>rear diff locked solid with less than a mile to go on the
Actually it was the center diff. The cross that holds the spider gears in place broke and sent shrapnel through the rest of the transmission. There is a big hole in the side of the case. I checked it out when we dropped our car off at TAD last night, and it wasn't pretty. They were hard at work on it when I left, and pending the arrival of a new diff the car should be rolling again tomorrow.
