DAKAR 2012  Stage 8  January 9th, 2012


12:47 - truck 533 - Ardavichus moves to the lead

Kazakhstan's Artur Ardavichus posted the best time at the second checkpoint of today's special. His time of 1 h 20'53" places his Kamaz 27" ahead of Dutchman Hans Stacey and his Iveco.


Ales Loprais and his Tatra are third, 35" behind the leader, with Gerard de Rooy fourth a further 21" back.



12:24 - truck 502 - CP1: De Rooy surges ahead

65 kilometres into the special and Gerard de Rooy leads the race with a 2'10" gap on Ales Loprais. This may seem a lot in absolute terms (roughly two seconds per kilometre) but is relatively little time in the world of rally-raids.


His closest rivals are still within striking distance and chasing him with very narrow gaps between them. Loprais is just 3" ahead of Ardavichus and 4" ahead of Stacey... Franz Echter lies 4'01" back in fifth.




11:47 - truck The trucks are on their way

The trucks have entered today's special half an hour ago, with Gerard de Rooy leading the way ahead of Ales Loprais and Andrey Karginov.


This category has witnessed a battle royale since the start of the 2012 Dakar: first among the Ivecos, which were joined later by the Kamazs and Loprais' Tatra. The race will probably stay this close at the first checkpoint, 65 km into the stage.
