STAGE 5 TRACKING
STAGE 5: SAN SALVADOR DE JUJUY > UYUNI
Connection 315km | Special Stage 327km | Total 642km
All round vigilance is required for this second part of the marathon stage: in addition to managing mechanics, particularly the tyres, all the drivers will have to pay attention to their own bodies’ reactions. Entry into Bolivia is also marked by an abrupt increase in altitude, rising to 4,600m –the higher point in Dakar’s story- during the day’s special section. Technically, it is also in this stage that the rally steps up a gear, with the first off-piste sections as well as some navigational gems which might be a headache for some navigators…
The GREEN section of the route is the connection , the RED is the Special Section of the stage.
Stage 5 Start Times:
Robby Gordon will be the 10th car off the line at 9:21am/et
Sheldon Creed will be the 26th car off the line at 9:47am/et

4750 meters. Hope they are carrying oxygen tanks.
Normal aspirated engine should work great up there!!
Looks like Tatanka used the shipping address of my last order which is my sons house.
So if anyone orders make sure they do not let that happen to them if it matters.
Just an FYI
