RE: Sprongle's S2 coupe

I was working the finish control for stage 13 on Sunday (the stage with the
BIG pileup of 2wd cars).  Sprongl ran the first 3 stages, which were covered
with 4 - 6" of snow, on gravel rally tires, and was starting 2nd behind the
Kiwi's.  When Geoff Argyle came into the control,. Sprongl was only about 20
seconds behind him, and they were using 2 minute intervals (this was a 6
miles stage)!!!  Frank was just flat out flying, and when I asked them how
it was going, they said "it's great!"  The next time through, when the stage
was run backwards, they had the snow tires on, and had even bigger grins =).
Unfortunately I didn't get to see the donuts, as I was towing cars out late
into the night, but I did see that Frank had nicely resurfaced the parking
lot for the hotel, as did Argyle ;-).
