The drama had just begun. Dust and tire smoke filled the air as drivers flung themselves at the ledge. The object of the race was to get to the finish line first, not to clean all the obstacles without using a winch. There was no penalty for winching, yet most drivers spent tons of time and wasted plenty of parts trying to drive up the ledge instead of winching after one or two unsuccessful tries. Still, you can't fault these guys for trying.
