Day 3 of RT13 saw the return of battle-ready teams who missed out on some of the previous day’s stages. The day saw one of the longest stages ever run in Rally Trinidad with a crisscross layout across Bronte. These four stages were run back-to-back and were the key deciding factor for the winner of RT13. The length of the stage and the level of difficulty proved to be a good test of the teams’ endurance and skill. Casualites were Cristian Bourne (gearbox failure), Latiff Khan and Zak Waddell just to mention a few.
