La Carrera Panamericana is entering its second day (Dias Dos) and the historic racecars are on the road through the Sierra Madres heading toward the day's final destination at Puebla, Mexico. The adrenaline spike occurring on Qualifying Day saw five racecars "off-roading" it; one vehicle flipped and damaged almost beyond recognition. Dias Uno started with two Ducati motorcycles leading the pack; a first for La Carrera Panamericana. By the end of day, another five racecars had missed navigating the mountain corners and curves which swiftly drove them to ditch diving or worse.
Today, the race continues....
