THE RACE

• Prologue: Chailley

On a sodden track in Chailley, Saby chalks up the first of only two stage victories by a Mitsubishi on this Dakar. Kinigadner, former world cross-country champion, does likewise on his KTM.

• 1st stage: Bordeaux

Driving rain floods the track and causes the organisers to interrupt the special stage. Those competitors unable to pass inherit the 21st place time. Claude Arnoux records the best time ahead of the ZXs. The special is cancelled for the motorbikes.

• 2nd stage: Grenada – Rabat (615 km)

Both specials are won by Lartigue. KTM records a new success with a stage win for Steuri. Magnaldi, who broke his chain, loses twenty-one minutes and finishes last. He is now 73rd in the overall standings, almost twenty-five minutes behind the leader Steuri.

• 3rd stage: Rabat – Agadir (655 km including 148 km of special)

First upset of the race. Saby breaks his front axle and loses four hours. On the other hand, everything goes well for Auriol, who wins the stage ahead of Lartigue.

• 4th stage: Agadir – Tan Tan (558 km including 255 km of special)

Winner of the first special, Auriol loses a lot of time in the second on account of punctures. Lartigue takes advantage of this to move ahead of Saby.

• 5th stage: Tan Tan – Dakhla (953 km including 693 km of special)

As the track has been marked by the Moroccan authorities, it is difficult to get lost in this long special stage on stony terrain.

The rear of Auriol’s ZX goes on fire and he loses an hour. The stage win goes to Weber ahead of Shinozuka and Lartigue.

• 6th stage: Dakhla – Nouhadibou (570 km including 415 km of special)

Another stony marked track for the arrival in Mauritania with a very fast route which costs Fontenay, whose turbo explodes, an hour and a half. Auriol comes in ahead of Lartigue who remains in first place overall.

• 7th stage: Nouhadibou – Nouakchott (485 km including 460 km of special)

Saby damages his Mitsu letting Shinozuka pass. He has to push his vehicle over the finishing line. Citroën prefers the route along the beach. This tactical choice also allows Lartigue to win the special stage while strengthening his leading position.

• 8th stage: Nouakchott – Dakar (476 km including two 151 and 30 km special stages)

We are now at the halfway mark and 162 competitors remain out of the 221 who started out. The two special stages of the day are won by Auriol and Lartigue. In the motorcycle category, Mas and Arcarons are the day’s winners.

• 9th stage: Dakar – Boutilimit (566 km including 170 special stage)

A first checkpoint is "forgotten" by 25 cars, which are penalised five hours. Lartigue wins the stage and consolidates his position as overall leader. In the motorbike category, Orioli is the winner riding his Cagiva.

• 10th stage: Boutilimit – Atar (491 km including 457 km of special stage)

Mitsubishi goes all out but their "Africa S" tyres specially designed for sand do not live up to their promise. Weber damages his car, Saby and Fontenay are in deep trouble and Shinozuka’s Pajero swallows a valve. Result: the special stage is won again by Auriol, second in overall standings behind Lartigue.

• 11th stage: Atar – Nouhadibou (680 km including 630 km of special)

This is the big clear-out. This already happened during reconnaissance, and things are not much better for this stage.

Everyone gets stuck in the sand: motorbikes and cars, Citroëns and Mitsubishi. Tensions rise between Fenouil and Auriol, who decides that all his team should avoid the dunes and ignore checkpoint No. 8, even if that means a five-hour penalty.

The two Mitsubushis, despite their perseverance, are not rewarded for their efforts. The standings are finally frozen at kilometre 246. The special stage is won by Lartigue ahead of Auriol and Shinozuka. Schlesser and Shinozuka drop out owing to a broken engine. Fontenay and Saby who arrive outside the time also leave the rally.

• 12th stage: Nouhadibou – Bir Amzarane

Owing to the previous day’s incidents and the late arrivals, the day’s special stage is cancelled. The competitors drive to Bir Amzarane in liaison.

• 13th stage: Bir Amzarane – Tan Tan (702 km including 625 km of special)

This stage is controlled by the Citroëns. Auriol chalks up his fifth special stage of the rally, and, results-wise, everything seems to be over bar the shouting. In the bike category, Orioli wins again with his Cagiva.

• 14th stage: Ourzazate – Melila (913 km including 138 km of special)

Citroën wins another easy victory. This time, race leader Lartigue, gets stuck in. In the bike category, Orioli continues to forge ahead. Good performance for the Duc-Z team, which does the double in the last African special stage (Talsint-Ouatel Hadj), with Rivière-Monnet ahead of Wambergue-Cotteret.

• 15th stage: Motril – Château-de-Lastours (1,230 km including 73 km of a special stage)

Second-last formality on the Spanish special which the rally already travelled on the outward leg. Lartigue‘s Citroën comes in ahead of Auriol’s.

• 16th stage: Château Lastours – Eurodisney

Auriol and Arcarons win the last special at Eurodisney. Citroën tastes success once again, Lartigue winning his first Dakar victory ahead of Auriol. Wambergue brings up third place. In the motorcycle category, Orioli wins riding his Cagiva. In the truck competition, Loprais, who also won in 1988, gets another taste of success at the wheel of his Tatra.
