Jan 12th, 2016 Dakar Rally Stage 9 Race Info & Discussion

Join in and discuss all the action from Stage 9 of the 2016 Dakar Rally. Robby Gordon start time: 7:37am/et, Sheldon Creed start time: 8:49am/et.



Connection 111km | Special Stage 285km | Total 396km


This loop stage will not really be one for motorbikes and quad bikes, which will finish the first part of this second marathon stage in an isolated bivouac. Prior to this they will have spent the day, alongside the drivers in the other categories, almost entirely off-piste, both in the vegetation-scattered dunes and on harder terrains, sometimes on river beds. Physically, the day might prove to be a significant challenge, as the mercury soars. The hardiest drivers will also be those who are the most clear headed, able to make the right navigational choices, a major challenge of this special section.

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

Stage 9 Starting Order

Robby Gordon is scheduled to be the 17th car off the line at 7:37am/et

Sheldon Creed is scheduled to be the 61st car off the line at 8:49am/et
Sebastian Loeb , is listed at 16th. Peterhansel 4th. Hirvonen in the Mini and Despre in the Pug are definitely wild cards

Today Gordon starts right behind Loeb with De Villiers and Poulter just in front, the stage is only a 1000m above sea level, we wil see how the Pug does against the 3 V8's with lungs full of air, expext a race within a race here today
As far as I can gather todays stage is on tracks, sandy and bumps like Baja?
