Jan 11th, 2016 Dakar Rally Stage 8 Race Info & Discussion

Join in and discuss all the action from Stage 8 of the 2016 Dakar Rally. Robby Gordon finished 11th in Stage 5, and his teammate, Sheldon Creed, finished 21st. The special section of Stage 8 is 393km. Robby Gordon start time: 7:26am/et, Sheldon Creed start time: 7:48am/et.



Connection 373km | Special Stage 393km | Total 766km


The change of terrain which marks the entry into the second part of the rally should also mark a change in programme for the drivers, who will face the first dune sections of the 2016 edition. Experts in dunes crossing will have an opportunity to demonstrate their skills and even gain an advantage. They will also notice the navigational difficulties which have been introduced this year to complicate their existence. Louds of minutes could be lost by vehicles blocked in the sand.

The GREEN section of the route is the connection , the RED is the Special Section of the stage.

Kellon in women's T? LOL!

I said pretty much the same thing last year when the Gordini first appeared. Could easily be an Evoque

Might get a Land Rover to replace the Gordini.All speculation as LR are more concerned about building new vehicles and developing markets

Looking at the times, Robby lost an hour +/- and Sheldon about 30 minutes during that side of the road repair.

Anyone have an idea what the mechanical was?

Few screws loose!!!

No, not with the driver and navigator, the car? lol

Oh Sorry !!!

For being right handed and only having my left to type with while HEAVILY medicated I am doing ok.

Glad to hear you are on the mend. Take your time. Follow your Dr's orders. Dont be like a TOOL and go back to work much too early after a major back surgery. Take it from me, its the medicine talking, which makes you think you are better than you really are.

So farr the meds aint talking quite loud enough.

They keep repeating themselves
