• 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 »

• Cyril Despres / David Castera on Peugeot DKR #100 extend their overall lead today, despite driving with a bit in reserve in order not to take too many risks. They classified 4th on the stage but still gained few minutes in the overall timetable. Read More »

• After a brief ‘day off’ in Urumqi, China, yesterday, the Peugeot Dream Team aboard the Peugeot DKR and Peugeot DKR Maxi made their return to competitive action on the Silk Way Rally today. Stage nine proved to be a tough one to kick off the second week: four hours of intense racing with the 50 first kilometres run on sand and then the next 370 kilometres taking place over rough terrain.
• Stephane Peterhansel took an impressive stage victory but Sebastien Loeb crashed at kilometre 82. Cyril Despres has taken the lead of the Silk Way Rally and is now 44 minutes ahead of his closest pursuer after finishing fifth on the stage.
