When we last updated, the All German Motorsports team was hundreds of miles into the race. The #105 Class 1 was running in the top five in class, and the Trophy Truck had worked its way near the top 10 in class. Everything was going well leading to the driver’s change at San Ignacio at race mile 615 (of 1121). That’s when Baja struck.
In Trophy Truck, Armin Schwarz had moved into the 11th spot (physically, without corrected time being calculated) after starting 31st and having at least one flat tire after hitting a large rock very near the start of the race. At about race mile 580, roughly 35 miles from the driver’s change where Martin Christensen would jump in, the truck began to lose oil pressure.
