    Teknisk besiktning och PR...

    Idag och imorron (fredag) deltagare i Safari Rallyt har fullt upp med besiktning och pre-event PR, förare möte osv.

    Annie's Husaberg team mekaniker har fått ordning på bränsle systemet (hoppas jag) och hon har kört höj för ett "shakedown run" tidigare idag... nu är det lite fin-putsning, dekaler och kopplar in GPS tracker osv. inför slutbesiktning på fredag.

    Några bilder av Annie på PR jippo dag...

    I den ena, står hon tillsammans med 2009 Australasian Safari tävlingsledaren; Justin Hunt.

    I den andra poserar Annie tillsammans med sin 2009 Husaberg 570 Safari Rally hoj.

    Den tredje är tagit i "Pinnacles" desert... från förra helgen, när Annie varit ute på ett litet träning runda med f.d. Aussie Safari KTM stjärna, Rob Pollard.

        Blogg spot... test ride

        (från Annies Blogg): "Went for a test ride this afternoon. Full tank was not pleasant riding.. need to do some adjustments. Big team briefing with all riders and mechanics and crew. Nice to meet everybody and hear the stories from last year's safari. The husaberg team was called the 'happy team' as there was such a good team spirit. I know we will keep that spirit this year too.:)

            Hur mycket rymmer tankarna? 25L fram och typ 10L bak?

                Aasr 2009

                Start (prolog) imorgon!
                Träffade Annie idag i samband med besiktningen här i Perth. Allt hade gått bra och hon verkade vara mycket nöjd med Teamet än så länge. Som tidigare nämnts så fanns det en del justeringar som behövdes göras (hade att göra med viktfördelning av bränsle). Imorgon bär det av...
                Vädret är just nu mycket trevligt med strålande sol och ca 18-20 grader på dagarna. En del regn väntas komma in senare under racet, men det kan nog bli precis lagom för att slippa det värsta dammet.

                Lycka till och kör hårt!

                    Ingen bra start för Annie

                    Annie haft problem med tripmätaren på prologue... resultat blev 47e tid och en sen start plats inför första rally dagen på lördag... kanske ett symptom av den "sista minute" preparation av hojarna (bränsle tankar osv.). Trist men vi vet att Annie har kämpat med liknande problem för... hon fixar det också!

                    (från hennes blogg)


                    Prologue, not a good one
                    2009-08-01 08:21

                    Started off early morning for the time qualification. On the way there couldn't get my 2 trip meters to match roadbook. Reset the wheel size smaller and smaller but still it would not a match. At the start I tried to follow notes but gave up after a few kms, decided to follow dust and trails in front. But after a while my husaberg team mate Mick (73) came opposite direction - he was lost. So we turned back and met some more riders. Found the right track and the finish, but lost some 8 minutes:(. On the way back tried setting the trip meter and finally got it right.. the new setting means an Aussie km is much shorter than a European!!! :O now I just need to adapt! Finished 47.. That sucks.

                      KTMs hojdesignare som fixade fram 950 Rally måste ju gråta blod när de ser vad firman gör med pengarna numera ;-D. Men en husa i rally har jag velat se länge, de har ju inte haft så bra framgångar tidigare, men med nytt skit i rallyformat så...

                      Fick samma mail från Anni. Bara att köra på och INTE klota!

                        Dag 1:

                        17:38 WST - 2/08/09

                        Smiths common at top of Safari leaderboard
                        The Smiths have dominated the leader board at the end of the opening day of the Australiasian Safari that took competitors across nearly 100 competitive kilometres from Perth to Geraldton.

                        The motorbike section is being lead by young New South Wales rider, Todd Smith, with his brother Jacob holding down second place just 12 seconds behind.

                        In the quadbike competition, Victorian Paul Smith has made an exceptionally strong start to the seven-day marathon, having opened up a three minute 11 seconds over West Australian, Heath Young.

                        The only competition not headed by a Smith is the car competition, with Safari veteran Des Harrington holding a narrow 15 second buffer over fellow Nissan Patrol driver, Adrian Parker, with defending champion Steve Riley third a further five seconds back.

                        The day’s stages were sandy affairs with some difficult water crossings to make it a challenge for both riders and drivers. Crews knew that while the first day was tough, it was only a precursor to what lies ahead over the following six days on the epic 3600 kilometre journey to Kalgoorlie on Saturday.

                        A consistent ride over the two stages has seen Todd Smith take a slender lead on his KTM over Jacob on the leading Honda. Mathew Fish is third in the bikes also on a KTM.

                        “It was a day where consistency and map reading was very important,” Todd Smith said. “There was a fair bit of track that was unmade and hard to see, but it all went well for me. The bike also performed well.”

                        His brother, Jacob, agreed that it was a difficult day.

                        “The course is pretty tough, so I took it easy and didn’t take any risks,” Jacob Smith explained. “Overall though it’s been a good day.”

                        Last year’s winner, Ben Grabham, had a “massive crash” on the first stage of the day, but still ended the day in fourth and only 53 seconds off the pace.

                        “I was trying to make up time and hit something on the flat and went over the handlebars,” a relaxed Grabham explained. “There’s no real damage and there’s still plenty of days left to make up any time lost today.”


                        PRINCESS NYHETER:

                        Efter sina 47e plats på prologue... Annie gjorde bättre idag, och kom 33e på lördags etapp 1... Då med bättre start position på sondag kan hon borjar resan upp i fältet hoppas vi...

                        Från Annie's blogg:

                        Day 1
                        2009-08-02 16:57

                        "Major prob with fuel system, when full gas engine dies after a while. Made it through stage one, then engine died again. Husaberg team mate GREEN towed me to service where I changed fuel pump and injector, took awhile. Bike stopped again at stage 2, but managed to finish. On way to bivouac stopped at farm and rerun fuel lines, got a bucket of fuel and fuelled up. At bivouac mechanics did a complete rebuild of fuel syst. Hope it works..."

                        Det ser ute som sista minut lösningar med bränsle system har spökat...

                                Prelim resultat: Leg 2.

                                15:25 WST - 3/08/09
                                Moto competitors have completed Leg 2 and J Smith provisionaly leads Roberts by 13 Sec.

                                13 sekunder är inte mycket efter två dagars tävling!

                                16:02 WST - 3/08/09
                                Ben Grabham (moto vinnare 2007 och 200 suffered a flat tyre after a loose spoke casused a puncture. Grabham was understandable dissapointed when he arrived at the finish of SS3. He has started to rebuild his challenge by winning SS4.

                                Inget nyhet om Annie än så länge...
