STAGE 2 TRACKING
STAGE 2: VILLA CARLOS PAZ > TERMAS DE RIO HONDO
Connection 337km | Special Stage 521km* | Total 858km
The statistics speak for themselves: with around 800 kilometres to cover depending on the category, the day will be very long. There is a significant distance to cover in both the special and the liaison sections: although the terrain presents no real difficulties, the relatively fast tracks may already benefit those who love hills and crossing rivers and who can keep up high speeds over the whole distance. Cars and trucks are entitled to an extension on this day.
The GREEN section of the route is the connection , the RED is the Special Section of the stage.
There is problem with http://www.trackingdakar.nl/index.php?track=312,337

Looks like Rg 10 thru wp 2
Tracker the same here too Carl
This is the stuff that really frustrates me...OK - so, the weather is bad and maybe ASO should postpone a day. But, to change the race, course, duration, etc is bad for fans....
Also - how bad can the weather be? Understand flooding concerns, those materialized last year...but, that should be taken into consideration in course mapping from the outset.
Thought the goal year after year was to find better routes!!
they try'd to, But when Chili and Peru withdrew after the course was set, we got what we got

11:50 Cars: Sainz grinds to a halt
Carlos Sainz has already lost valuable time, remaining immobile for a good fifteen minutes after 112 km. Might his Peugeot 2008 be experiencing technical problems?
Musta rained on the tracking equipment.
