Either mud or a sidewall cut. Not sure yet.

Seems like it was only mud that crept in when the tire got manipulated by a rock on the "tunnel route".

We did have one mishap on Sunday morning though.
Corrie's one trailing arm bent on the most techincal part of the Tierkloof route.
This seems to be a weak spot on Patrols. I snapped one on Shortie in January with devastating effect.
Fortunately in his case it was not snapped of, and Tijmen managed to bend it more or less straight again with a bottle jack. So the car was driveble back home.
