With Eric Vigouroux
Eric Vigouroux, newly installed in the US, prepares the 2008 Tunisia rally by driving at home, in desert zones, between San Francisco and the Mexican border: “desert is just besides home”.
These are the ideal conditions to test his Chevrolet Trophy
Truck, particularly designed for this environment. It is a central back engine car with a V-drive, a part designed for power race boat, to have power on the rear wheel. Another specific point of this true American car is that the total capacity of the rear transmission oil tank is 7.57 litres…
This is the 8th start for this desert passionate man who has ended the 2007 edition at a nice 14th place with excellent results during some stages such as his 2nd position at the 7th stage. His ambition this year: the podium and its highest place.
One of his most marking moment within all his starts, is obviously the last year one. “We were, in the 4th or 5th stage, struggling with Schlesser, and then transmission drive broke down. Game over”.
This racer has been so close to the victory that “I am still dreaming about it during the night”!
Therefore, rendezvous on the 23rd of April for the revenge
