6. July 2000, Binghamton to Newark
Our last driving day in North America again turns out to be tight-scheduled. By getting into more populated areas now (can it get any more populated than New York City? - but we pass by it) we have to fight against delays caused by heavy traffic. Additionally there is some construction on the route, so we suddenly find twenty of the rally cars all driving together and trying to overtake each other. But it's a good thing that the day is short. In the afternoon we have another general service (oil and grease) at Strauss Discount Auto: they work overtime for us and do not charge anything (special thanks to Alberto). We end the day in a restaurant with the most spectacular view on New York City, which only New Jersey can offer.
Overall 1 hour 47 minutes penalty
