Dakar Rally 2019

Stage 03, San Juan de Marcona – Arequipa

 

  • Stéphane Peterhansel takes his initial theatre win in a MINI
    John Cooper Works Buggy during Dakar 2019.
  • Four MINI crews finish Stage 3 inside a tip five.
  • Five MINI crews inside a tip 6 after day 3 of Dakar 2019.

 

Munich.
Stéphane Peterhansel (FRA) and co-driver David Castera (FRA)
put in a overwhelming expostulate currently that finished with them winning Stage 3.
Today’s outcome now places a French twin and their MINI John Cooper
Works Buggy third altogether in a ubiquitous ranking.

 

The MINI John Cooper Works Rally of Jakub ‘Kuba’ Przygonski (POL) and
co-driver Tom Colsoul (BEL) was a second MINI automobile to finish inside
today’s tip five. Just over a notation later, Yazeed Al-Rajhi (KSA) and
co-pilot Timo Gottschalk (GER) followed them opposite a finish point
to secure fourth place. This outcome now places Al-Rajhi second overall.

 

Joan ‘Nani’ Roma (ESP) and co-driver Alex Haro (ESP) didn’t have a
good start to a day though fast done adult places in a second half
of Stage 3. Their dynamic expostulate paid off by securing fifth place.

 

Cyril Despres (FRA) and Jean Paul Cottret (FRA) managed to finish
Stage 3 in sixth place, that mirrors yesterday’s (Stage 2) result.
This coherence has paid off as they are now sixth in a general
ranking. Boris Garafulic (CHI) and co-driver Filipe Palmeiro (POR)
confirmed their assign to get inside a tip 10 ranking by
completing Stage 3 in 14th place.

 

Lady Luck wasn’t roving currently with Carlos Sainz and co-driver Lucas
Cruz. Just 40 km into a Special Stage, a MINI organisation had a racing
occurrence that resulted in serious frontal repairs to their MINI John
Cooper Works Buggy. It was some time before they could get behind into
a competition in sequence to be prepared for tomorrow’s Stage 4.

 

Stéphane Peterhansel

“Today was a unequivocally severe day with a difficult navigation of
a big, soothing dunes in Peru. It was not easy since we had to stay
unequivocally focused for 4 hours; if we remove only one square of
information, it is easy to get lost. It was unequivocally easy to make a
mistake on today’s stage, though David did a unequivocally good job. We drove
good together and this is a initial theatre we have won together, so
good news.”

 

Yazeed Al Rajhi

“Today was good. We had dual tiny problems where we mislaid time, from a
delayed puncture where we strike a mill during a front though we managed to
finish and all is okay.”

 

Cyril Despres

“It was a unequivocally good theatre and we were enjoying it a lot, making
good navigation and creation a approach by a dunes. But afterwards we were
looking for a GPS navigation that was clearly not on a right
kilometre from a order book. It’s a place with a lot of ups and downs
and lots of dunes; we upheld 6 bikes…”

 

Next competition is Stage 4, Arequipa – Tacna. For some-more information about
