Munich. MINI crews during Dakar 2019 achieved a overwhelming victory

Stéphane Peterhansel (FRA) and co-driver David Castera (FRA) in a
MINI John Cooper Works Buggy grabbed a lead early in a competition and
hold their haughtiness and position until a finish point. This is the
second theatre win for a French twin and, with today’s win, places them
second in a altogether ranking, usually 29min 16sec off a heading car.

 

Joan ‘Nani’ Roma (ESP) and co-driver Alex Haro (ESP) in their MINI
John Cooper Works Rally was a usually genuine hazard to Peterhansel from
a start and via a race. Roma even managed to take the
heading mark during Waypoint 3 though eventually took second place usually 4min
33sec behind Peterhansel.

 

Third MINI organisation home and third in theatre was that of Carlos Sainz
(ESP) and co-driver Lucas Cruz (ESP) in a MINI John Cooper Works
Buggy. With this outcome Sainz has managed to lift behind time on his
rivals and re-entered a heading tip 10 in tenth position.

 

Cyril Despres (FRA) and co-driver Jean Paul Cottret (FRA) completed
Stage 7 in fifth. Of a 4 MINI crews in a tip 5 during theatre end,
theirs was a third MINI John Cooper Works Buggy during Dakar 2019 to
finish among those tip five.

 

Jakub ‘Kuba’ Przygonski (POL) and co-driver Tom Colsoul (BEL)
confirmed their common unchanging gait to cranky a theatre finish point
in seventh place. Fellow MINI John Cooper Works Rally organisation Yazeed
Al-Rajhi (KSA) / Timo Gottschalk (GER) arrived during theatre finish in
13th. They were followed home by Boris Garafulic (CHI) and
co-driver Filipe Palmeiro (POR) in 14th.

 

Stéphane Peterhansel

“Not a ideal stage, again. We did a large burst during a commencement in
a dunes. It was a large one and we landed during a front on a bonnet
and we saw some stars in my eyes after this large impact. After this I
started to combine and overtook Nani. It was a good outcome but
still not a ideal day.”

 

Nani Roma

“Tough, tough stage. In a commencement there was a lot fesh-fesh from
a same lines as a day before. It was not an easy preference to make
on a pressures of a tyres since we have a lot of rocks in the
initial 150 km and a lot of silt in 100km. But we are here and happy. I
had devise in my mind that we try to continue but mistake; during the
impulse that devise is working.”

 

Carlos Sainz

“Quite a formidable day. We stopped during a commencement true divided to
wait for Stephane for a few minutes. We some-more or less, solely for a
integrate of punctures, scarcely had a good day.”

 

Cyril Despres

“For certain it was perfectionist currently between a silt dunes and sand
valleys. The automobile is reacting unequivocally good to a opposite situations. We
were doing ok until a tyre came off a edge going downhill – it is
not easy to change a circle in such soothing conditions. We had to finish
a final 40 km in a sandstorm and this pennyless my stroke towards a end.”

 

Jakub Przygonski

“We started serve behind with a lot trucks in front and this is not
so good for us when they destroy a tracks. On a dunes it was
unequivocally soothing silt so we had to stop to discourage a tyres for more
traction. This was a good preference since from afterwards we didn’t have to
stop and we pushed tough to a end.”
