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.

Oh I'm sure they will...

15 minutes adrift is fine. long race.

Assistance..? when did that become a problem? Robby did the whole steering unit swap one year his team mate...what was her name?

video poped up of a peugot gettting pulled too dont worry


Wow, far cry from the old Dakar races.... from sand to mud....LOL

Dumas doesn't really count, he's in last year rig

Judda K.

Michael, another race vehicle can provide assistance. BJ, Eric V and Eliseo Salazar all carried the spare parts for RG. (think of the spare hub on Eliseo's 327 when he drove passed Robby before the stage started). Support/Assistance vehicles cannot provide support during a Special.

Jutta Kleinschmidt was the lady in question
VW team 2005
