Really interesting challenge with HPI BAJA 5B
Day 1 (24/6 departed 02:00 arrival 16:51 o'clock) Started our journey from Tomstundahusid in Reykjavik to Hofn in Hornafjoršur. Covered 441,41km. Took 8:55,13 of driving time, 5:55,03 stopping and pit time, total time of 14:50,16 for day 1. The first 200 km took 4:01 hours.
Day 2 (25/6 departed 04:27 arrival 21:56) Hofn in Hornafjord to Akureyri. Trip of 516,20km. Driving time 10:16,53 and stopping time 7:42,17. Total of 17:59,10 hours. Drove over 200km of dirt and repair roads, used the original Baja off-road tires for that section. Forgot to change the receiver battery for 5 1/2 hours (due to long dirt roads which needed a lot of attension), it was the only time in the journey that the fail safe kicked in (just after we crossed a bridge).
Day 3 (26/6 departed 6:49 arrival 19:30) Akureyri to Reykjavik (Tomstundahusid) Distance 425,43km. Driving time 8:00,19 and stopping time 5:41,10. Total of 13:41,29 hours for day 3.
Total driving time for the trip was 27:12:25 hours and stopping time was 19:18:30 (that does not include 10 hours sleeping time for the whole trip).
