• With just two days to go, Cyril Despres/David Castera keep fighting to maintain their healthy 45-minute overall lead over their closest pursuers on the Silk Way Rally, with teammates Stéphane Peterhansel/Jean-Paul Cottret watching their backs carefully.
• The leading duo aboard the Peugeot DKR #100 had a scare on today’s 12th stage, when they got stuck on a sand dune and, a couple of kilometres later, lost power steering, meaning they were classified eighth-fastest on the stage. This cost them 20m30s on the stage but only 11m to their closest pursuer in second place overall. The Peugeot DKR #106 driven by Stephane Peterhansel was able to offer assistance, limiting the time loss on the stage, and was classified 10th on the stage. Another example of great team work, with team spirit high in the final push to the finish. Read More »
