PRW : Guido, 2nd attempt, with the DAC F1 – and 360 Mercury APX engine. What do u think of this years chances ?

The condition is now very good, we have a lot of water in the river Po, so we are working hard to set a perfect line. We are testing alot, and am very confident that we can break the record. Last year we was on good pace, when a small technical problem forced us to withdraw, thats all behind us – and we are ready for the 70th edition of the raid.
