Dakar Rally 2013 - Argentina/Chile
1st start (GMT-5) : 5:45 AM





13:50 - car
300 - Al-Attiyah wins the special!


In spite of the domination by Guerlain Chicherit (FRA/SMG) during the intermediate part, in the end Nasser Al-Attiyah (Buggy Qatar Red Bull) won the day's special in the last few kilometres, ahead of the Frenchman driving for the SMG team.

Thirty six seconds separated the two men on completion of the 289 km of the timed section! Stéphane Peterhansel (FRA/Mini) finished in third place 1'17" ahead of Giniel de Villiers (AFS/Toyota) who came in 4'15" behind the stage winner.

Nani Roma (ESP/Mini), 7'27" behind Al-Attiyah, was fifth ahead of Leonid Novitskiy (RUS/Mini), 13'55" behind the Qatari.



13:13 - car
CP2: Nothing changes...


227 km into the stage, the Top 5 in the car category remains pretty much the same, with Chicherit still in the lead ahead of the Peterhansel/Al-Attiyah duo, who are only 5" apart.

Roma and Novitskiy are still in the Top 5 but we're waiting for Giniel de Villiers, fourth at the previous checkpoint.



12:32 - car
303 - Sainz in trouble


After yesterday's electronic problems, Carlos Sainz's car seems to be giving him a hard time again. The Spaniard has been stopped near km 147 for twenty minutes now.



12:29 - car
309 - Chicherit leads at CP1


Lucio Álvarez and Robby Gordon are still at a standstill and therefore out of the fight for today's special, leaving Guerlain Chicherit, Stéphane Peterhansel and Nasser Al-Attiyah in the lead at kilometre point 173.

There's a 1'10" gap between the two Frenchmen, with the Qatari a further 33" back. Nani Roma is driving strongly in fourth, ahead of Leonid Novitskiy.



11:24 - car
Chicherit leads Sainz after 52 km


At the 52-km point, the race situation favours Guerlain Chicherit, who leads Carlos Sainz, Stéphane Peterhansel and Nasser Al-Attiyah in the provisional standings for the day. The front three are followed by Giniel de Villiers and Nani Roma.

The virtual gaps between the leading men are not very large, but the first precise gaps will be given after 173 km. Robby Gordon and Lucio Alvarez have been at a standstill for the last hour, the American after rolling his vehicle onto the roof and the Argentinean due to technical problems.


10:37 - car
315 - Gordon on his roof


It was expected that Robby Gordon would attack today (like every day, in any case), but he has perhaps pushed a little too hard because it has been reported that the American's Hummer is lying on its roof after 29 km of the special stage. The crew is unharmed, but it remains to be seen whether the American will be able to set the car up right and continue the race.



09:52 - car
Peter leads the pack

Stéphane Peterhansel, leader of the rally, will be starting the 289 km of the special stage in several minutes, with the firm intention of increasing his lead over his pursuers. At present, the route is being opened by Nasser Al-Attiyah, winner of yesterday's stage, for the 136 cars authorised to start the stage.

Behind him, Robby Gordon will be spcing things up, whereas Carlos Sainz, whose times on the second stage have been re-adjusted by the race officials, will start in fourteenth place.



23:01  RACE OFFICIALS' DECISION


The race officials for the car category,

After having examined the report made by the Race Director,

After discussions with the Race Director,

After discussions with competitor number 303,

After discussions with technical service provider ERTF,

Have taken the following decision:

Cancelation of the decision taken previously by the Race Management, on the following basis:

The Race Management took its decision on 6th January 2013 further to a claim from competitor 303 on the basis of partial technical analysis proving that the main GPS experienced malfunctions.

Comprehensive and more detailed analysis, based on the final report made by ERTF, in fact revealed that the second GPS was functioning correctly.
