In the Extreme Class in the Rallye Breslau Poland you face all natural obstacles available in Europe. Water, mud, rivercrossings, beautifull forestroads, sand.. if you are unsure how to cross an obstacle, you ask your codriver to go out and check the terrain or find a dry place in the swamp (...) If you have no patience, you go in right away, floor it and BAM you are stuck.. unless you have a Unimog of course.
Today we had incredible situations in the extreme class, with cordrivers shouting, winches running hot and cars and trucks sinking until the dashboard into the water and the mud. After an extreme section the roadbook continues for another 100 kilometer through the forests of West-Poland. Just remember to put the roadbook in the dry place before you leave the vehicle..
Usually the driver gets the car stuck, sends the codriver outside into the mud to do the work and complains why it takes so long to dig up the winchcable or to reach that tree on the other side.. Racing a car or truck is teamwork and even more in the extreme class. Today we couldn't believe the speed of a young couple, who found a way around the deepest parts of the swamp and crossed it in no time, getting a well deserved applause from the crowd!
