Day 21

Today was our third official rest day. As usual, Mario had a few jobs to do on the Citroen. The car’s left rear was still a bit too low so he had to refit the new torsion spring which ended up being a bigger ordeal than expected.

He also discovered a crack in our fuel tank. It is only dripping ever so slightly, so it is not yet worth the effort of taking it out but we will have to keep an eye on it.

Many participants ventured into town but didn’t stay out long, opting to get massages and club sandwiches back at the hotel. By the time Mario returned, most of the day had passed and so we decided against exploring Ufa. Instead we joined some of the others for dinner in a nearby hotel.
