We don't need no stinkin road...
During this years 2006 La Carrera Panamericana drivers were told there was a "bad spot" to be on the lookout for on a certain section of road. To many driver's surprise what they found wasn't actually a "bad spot" but more like no spot at all. In this photo you can clearly see half the road had washed away the night before. Just imagine how many drivers and navigators needed spare underwear after coming around this corner at full speed. Most race tracks have a safety margin or runoff when things get a little hairy but all you get here is... Well, you get nothing if you screw up.
In reality, this is simply one more obstacle to be aware of when racing in Mexico and it can only help make the race more interesting and adventuresome.
