Connection 100km | Special Stage 243km | Total 343km



Tempers are likely to flare inside the vehicles, as the level of stress increases. The recently formed pairs will have passed a major test during the first one hundred kilometres. The South Americans have adopted the term “Erg”, which accurately describes the sequence of dunes that they will have to negotiate in the small hours. All the competitors who go over them without getting stuck, including those in the lead, will be able to proudly breathe a sigh of relief. Their first reward will be to take advantage of the route along the seafront on the second half of the special stage. But the respite will be short-lived, as the tracks they will take at the end of the stage will also require skill and vigilance.


RED is the special section, GREEN is the connection.

"High Road" is quite an understatement. For those used to raggin on RG, I don't think they'll find anything to use. A very well-spoken, sportsmanlike interview.

As usual, Gas On, Robby! We're behind ya.

In how many stages does Robby need to beat peckerhandle before we can really start insulting him for driving a girly car? Good show Robby!
