  • “2012 Dakar Rally” final results

    Hot Pic Title

    This year racing teams covered more than nine thousand kilometers of Argentine and Peru roads. The last stage from Nasca to Lima, the capital of Peru, was a kind of prae-finish winners parade, because its total length was 254 km and speed part of the track was only 29 km, which is less than on other stages.

    Actually, everything ended already on the previous stage, from Nasca to Pisco, where racers covered 375 km and speed part of the track was 275 km. Considering, that on January 1st in Mar del Plata, Argentina, started 443 vehicles and finished only 249 of them (78 cars, 60 trucks, 97 motorcycles and 12 quads), “RE Autoclub” racing team result is pretty good.

    In speaking of winners, victory in all categories secured those racers, who were expected to win. For example, in car class predictably won X-Raid team's member Stephane Peterhansel on all-wheel drive Mini. He celebrated a victory for already 10th time: six – driving a motorcycle and four – in a car class.
