    Default The Rallye Dakar 2012 Thread

    Just thought I owuld start a thread to gather and catch the hype and hoop for this year's Dakar Rally in Argentine, Chile and Peru. Some exciting developments with Robby Gordon bringing on defending champion Nasser Al-Atiyah and Qatar to the Speed Hummer. And with the X-Raid Team posting a fleet of Minis it seems like it will be a Mini vs Hummer battle as yours truly had wished/predicted

    Default Stage 4 Highlights Cars : Al-Attiyah quick, Peterhansel Consistent

    That Stephane Peterhansel won the stage and retook the overall lead only a day after falling from first to fifth is only the start of the story of the stage for the cars.

    Other than the final 40km this was another stage all about Nasser Al-Attiyah displaying the brutal potential of the Hummer H3 when the terrain suits the Robby Gordon Motorsport run machine. The Qatari led the stage times at all of the way points, eventually enjoying a lead of over three minutes over Peterhansel after 262km.

    Al-Attiyah’s charge, however, came to an end in mud at 288km.

    “Towards the end of the special,” he explained, “we got stuck in the mud and it took us a long time to get out of it… But the race is not over yet and we will try to do our best over the next ten days. I am starting to get the feel of my car. This morning we were moving at a great pace, setting the best times without pushing too hard. We actually overtook two of the Minis. So we will see what we can do.”

    It was teammate Robby Gordon, running some distance behind after losing time to punctures in the early kilometres to pull him free, but not before 27 minutes had ebbed away in favour of Peterhansel.

    Behind the Frenchman Orlando Terranova (Toyota Hilux) made his first appearance in a stage top five, this year with co-driver Andy Grider, a man who in the past has shared a Hummer with Robby Gordon, ahead of Giniel de Villiers (Toyota Hilux). De Villiers, as yet, has been the quiet man of the race, never fastest but also never losing time and his steady pace means he is now second overall.

    Default Speed Energy Stage 4 Update

    Robby is still very hopeful, though the Hummers are dogged by technical issues. It seems like there is a curse on RGM for the Dakar or the cars are perhaps too powerful to keep it together

    Default Dakar Rally Stage 5 Results and Stage 6 Cancellation News

    Krzysztof Holowczyc wins Dakar stage five to close on Stephane Peterhansel
    Krzyzstof Holowczyc slashed the gap to Dakar Rally leader Stephane Peterhansel by winning the fifth stage of the event on Thursday.

    The X-raid Mini driver completed the 110-mile timed section of the stage from Chilecito to Fiambala - shortened by 30 miles due to overnight rain making a section of the route impassable by car - in 2h10m51,
    almost four minutes faster than his team-mate Peterhansel.

    After losing the rally lead to the Frenchman and dropping to fourth place overall on Wednesday, Holowczyc's stage victory - his first of the 2012 event - hauled him back up to second; halving the gap to the X-raid team leader from over eight minutes to just 4m18s in the process.

    The Polish driver's cause was helped by overnight second place man Giniel de Villiers coming to a halt 45 miles into the stage and losing almost 20 minutes to his rivals. The delay dropped the 2009 Dakar winner to fifth place.

    Wednesday's stage winner Nani Roma was fourth quickest top third overall in his Mini, ensuring that the X-raid team now occupies all three podium positions. He is a little under 11 minutes off the lead and a just over six minutes behind Holowczyc.

    Robby Gordon was second fastest through Thursday's stage - the last to be contained solely within Argentina - and maintained his fourth place overall in the Hummer run by his own team.

    Gordon's team-mate Nasser Al-Attiyah suffered another frustrating day, however. Having lost half an hour owing to delays on Wednesday, the Qatari fought back and was 3m30s clear of his nearest rival at the fourth of five checkpoints today.

    However, he was forced to stop with less than 20 miles remaining when his Hummer's radiator emptied itself, the resultant overheating triggering the car's emergency cut-out. A total of 24 minutes were lost as the system was repaired and the coolant topped-up.

    The time loss dropped him almost an hour off the lead and left him eighth overall, behind Leonid Novitskiy (Mini) and Carlos Sousa (Great Wall).

    There was also bad news for Orlando Terranova, who was a surprise second quickest on Wednesday. He fell out with his co-driver Andy Grider overnight; the pair refusing to work with each other again. As a result, he was forced to withdraw from the event.
    Code:
    Leading positions after stage five:
    
    Pos  Driver                   Car          Time/Gap
     1.  Stephane Peterhansel     Mini         11h58m03s
     2.  Krzysztof Holowczyc      Mini          + 4m18s
     3.  Nani Roma                Mini         + 10m39s
     4.  Robby Gordon             Hummer       + 13m32s
     5.  Giniel de Villiers       Toyota       + 21m01s
     6.  Leonid Novitskiy         Mini         + 30m51s
     7.  Carlos Sousa             Great Wall   + 40m55s
     8.  Nasser Al-Attiyah        Hummer       + 50m47s
     9.  Erik van Loon            Mitsubishi   + 53m33s
    10.  Lucio Alvarez            Toyota       + 59m10s
    Stage six of the Dakar Rally is cancelled due to bad weather
    Stage six of the 2012 Dakar Rally has been cancelled due to bad weather rendering the route from Fiambala to Copiapo unsafe.

    Heavy rain and snow on Wednesday night forced stage five of the event to be shortened by around 30 miles, and with the bad weather continuing after Thursday's action came to an end, yet more of the route has now been affected.

    Event organiser the ASO said: "Due to the bad weather continuing over the Andes Cordillera, the Chilean authorities were forced to close, for the night, the border at Paso de San Francisco, situated at 4700m.

    "Because of the unfavourable conditions, added to the fact that the course has been hit by rain and snow, the organisers have decided guarantee the security of the competitors and those following the rally."

    The sixth stage of the Dakar was due to have taken the crews over the Andes mountains and across the border from Argentina into Chile, with a 170-mile timed section forming the backbone of the 405-mile route.

    Instead of the scheduled stage, a convoy has instead been organised to take the car, truck, bike and quad crews over the border.

    Stephane Peterhansel continues to lead the event, 4m18s ahead of his X-raid Mini team-mate Krzysztof Holowczyc.
