Night Engine Change

We are at the italian rally championship, today was the first of a 2 day race. Unfortunately i crashed a few times and in a big crash at 30km from the finish i broke the carter and lost all the engine oil. Incredibly my Husaberg FE 570cc brought me till the end but started making loads of noise because losing the oil i ruined the piston. Even with these problems i made it in 2′ place at the end of the stage, but the problem was that i didnt have with me another engine so my father had to drive 200km to go and get an engine and drive back. Now its almost midnight and my father is starting to take down the ruined engine and mount the good one…..at 8 i have to start….will we make it??? I dunno but surely this is a good Dakar situation test!!! I’ll update you tomorrow! For now here is a picture…
