STAGE 4 TRACKING


STAGE 4:   San Salvador de Jujuy > Calama

Connection 554km | Special Stage 207km | Total 761km


COURSE OVERVIEW

The Dakar leaves Argentina provisionally to cross the Andes mountain range via the Paso de Jama pass. To reach this point, the climb will start during the night. Once they have crossed the border, the crews will ascend to an altitude of 4,800 metres, i.e. the same height as Mont-Blanc, without crampons or ice-picks! In sporting terms, the arrival in Chile also heralds the entrance to the Atacama Desert and the first off-track racing of the rally. The start of the relatively short special stage will take place at 3,300 metres. At this point, the vehicles will have to handle stony terrain as the dunes approach.

Here we go - "off road" hummer country.
1.5 hours down?  Tomorrow will be a thing of beauty!  Hold on to your press pants...

Its Showtime!

 

hey, why does the previous stage thread dissapear after the race?  Thats how most of us catch up on the days races.

The threads are still there. If for some reason you can't see the listing, would URLs help?  The chats go away, though.

 

 

Fly Robby Fly! A long way to go and we are pulling hard. I will be there next year.
I think the competion between the Vw guys is great,  Sainz is down to The G-man, miller isa water carrier,  i think it is time to attack.  Gas on Rg, chercers or wreckers

 Race the fiat !!

Check out the rear tire air system in this shot from PLANETROBBY. Crew working late into the night
So the weather looks good for the stage, 79 dg. and partly cloudy
So is this stage more of a wide open?  or is it a bunch of narrow winding roads still? 
We're making up time today. Strap in!!!
