Luby (& Lilly)
Johannes Gauglica was the first one to spot that Kurt Luby
has finally achieved one of his lifetime aims – a ride in
the (Paris-) Dakar Rally.
You can follow
Kurt’s progress using this link.
readers will remember Kurt sharing the Sintura with Richard Dean
in 1999 (that's Richard on the left of the photograph, Kurt in the
middle), a season that ended with an ALMS adventure at Laguna Seca
(which had its hilarious moments, but saw the pair make the finish).
They’d already won the British GT race at Silverstone, Luby
fending off a challenge from Magnus Wallinder in the Blue Coral
The season before, Luby
and Dean had been GT2 Champions in the Oftedahl Viper – but
Kurt has always kept himself fit with trials riding, and a ride
in the Paris-Dakar was in his thoughts then.
He’s already moved
up from 169th position yesterday to 134th today.
smaller than Kurt is this addition to the dsc ‘stable’:
this is Lilly, nine weeks old, and a new arrival here today. Concerns
that she might lack confidence among the three regulars here (Jack
the border collie and Peanut and Oscar the two cats) proved to be
unfounded: Lilly is an absolute terror! Jack’s tail is the
main target at the moment.
She may look
angelic - but she isn't.
What breed is she? Not
really sure! There’s some boxer in her, but probably a few
other breeds too.
