Big trouble for Jason White

The biggest news out of yesterday’s George Town stage is that overall leader, Jason White, broke the differential of his Dodge Viper off the start line.

The diff was making strange noises on Day 1, then let go as White began yesterday’s single stage.

The team have replaced the diff, but the spare has been described as “lazy”, meaning that  it spins one wheel quite a lot and will mean that the Dodge will lose valuable time on tight corners.

With no other spare diff available, White is hoping that the top speed of the Viper will make up for the lack of speed in tight corners, but whether the new diff can last for another four tough days remains to be seen.
