ALDO Racing Toyota Up to fourth place at the Mexican 1000 Rally

The ALDO Racing Team Toyota Tacoma Overdrive was sixth at the finish line in Loreto, Mexico on Monday night at the end of Day 2 of the 2014 NORRA Mexican 1000 Rally, but the Canadian team was holding fourth spot on the provisional standings, all class included, and first in the Rally All Wheel Drive (RAWD) class.

The three vehicles leading the ALDO Racing truck are all part of the open modified class. Driving a Chevrolet 1500 truck, Jerry Herbst was the leaser with a combined time of 10 hours, 10 minutes and 8 seconds ahead of the Chenowth DR2 of Bob (Robbie?) Gordon, who was 11 and half second behind. Third place was held by the Spcon Sand Rail of Jim Smith, only 98 hundreds of a second behind Gordon. The ALDO Racing team of David Bensadoun and Patrick Beaulé was fourth with a cumulative time of 10 hours, 38 minutes and 51 seconds, only 2.59 seconds ahead of their nearest rival, Gary Williams in his unlimited Protruck Chevrolet.

Starting 10th on Tuesday morning, the Aldo Racing Team was holding the fort with the leaders at mid-day.

"On Monday, we used the same elements that helped us do so well on Sunday, plus we added a new navigation device," said codriver Patrick Beaulé. "All the navigation equipment system is new here on the Toyota Tacoma, and I am gradually mastering each element. What is really paying off right now is the fact that we acquired the Toyota. Tuesday, we are going to be in full control at all levels. Everything went well on Monday except for a punctured tire on the right front sidewall while we exited a sharp curve. The good news is that it only took three minutes to fix it and get back on the road. The other good news is that did not any lose position in the overall standings because of the incident."
