DiRTy Gossip

Recommended Posts

Sorry, I was referring to the picture, mondays tend to be firefighting days and they do make a Monday tweet, not sure it's for release.
They ran out of fuel on the way home from Barcelona!

Perhaps if they had the actual distance they were traveling written down somewhere, they'd know how much fuel they needed. >:)

The moral of the story is, never go on a promo event with @KickUp , the man's jinxed. First time, he gets a speeding ticket and this time he runs out of petrol, how @JonTucker is still in one piece is beyond me lol

While running out of fuel is a cardinal sin this is the series of events that occurred to cause it to happen which made it virtually unavoidable. 

We drove from Barcelona to our hotel in France leaving at 6pm. 
30minutes from our hotel (approximately 11:00pm) the sat nav took us off the autoroute and into the countryside to get us to our hotel that was right next to the very road we had been driving on (I'm guessing it was the nearest junction). By the time we reached the hotel our very comfortable fuel margin had become 45 miles range. 

The he next morning we started the van and the range reported 26miles. So we drove to the autoroute having checked Google Maps safe in the knowledge that the nearest station was in 10miles. 

When we got to that station it turned out to be very close to the autoroute but not accessible from it. The next station was in 15km. By this point the gauge said we had 16 miles left. 

We then had massive betrayal from the fuel guage as it dropped from 16 to 6 miles left in the space of about 3 minutes. It then rapidly dropped to 0.

When you are on the autoroute there is no option but to keep going so we just kept at it hoping that it would hold on but it started to get a bit stuttery and then cut out on us. Luckily there was an SOS point and I was able to get the van stopped as there was no hard shoulder for the next 1km. 

In the end we fell 2km short. There was nothing we could do given the series of events and it is highly embarrassing but thems are the breaks.

Glad to see @KickUp and @Hatward back from their epic road trip to Barca - we're quietly hoping for a blog post dedicated to what you've learned from the divers, how you'll use the research pics and any crazy stories (eating bull testies can be considered a crazy story...)

The fuel mishap will probably be re-called at some point in the future - it was your fault for posting about it on Twitter :D

Oh, and which Monster Girl was best at DiRT Rally? As I said on Twitter I'm a fan of such outfits, I wear one myself when playing DR...

Maybe @kickup can be coaxed to post a picture of the finland track if @MastaVonBlasta posts a pic in that outfit he is talking about.
