DAKAR 2010   - Argentina/Chile

15:40 - truck 507 - Now the battle between the trucks is underway...

Dutchmen Marcel Van Vliet and Gérard De Rooy are opening the road for the 74 trucks that remain on the rally. The leaders of the category started the second special stage of the Dakar 2012 from 3.16 PM local time onwards.

Behind them, German driver Franz Echter and Italian Miki Biasion have also got to grips with the 295 kilometres of the timed section. In this category, the Top 10 can all be found within a two-minute envelope in the general standings, so this stage promises to be rich in incidents.

09:22 - truck 507 - The trucks are on the road...

Dutchman Marcel Van Vliet set off in his Man truck to San Rafael from Santa Maria de la Pampa this morning at 9.02 AM local time, to tackle the second Argentine stage of the Dakar 2012.

He was followed by the Iveco of his countryman Gérard De Rooy, second on the first day's special stage between Mar del Plata and Santa Maria.

Afterwards, German Franz Echter (Man) and former two times world rally champion Miki Biasion (ITA) in his Iveco truck set off on the 487 kilometre link stage leading to today's special stage.
