Strong Start In Second Week For Riwald Dakar Team

After a well deserved rest day the Dakar Rally has stepped into the second week this sunday. The Riwald Dakar Team spent their rest day well, because Bernhard ten Brinke and Erik Wevers came strong out of the starting blocks. Although there were no less than 533 kilometres of special stage on the program, the day wasn't that heavy. The HRX Fords were able to show their true speed, which resulted in two excellent results.

Ten Brinke finished tenth after more than five hours of driving, twenty minutes behind the day's winner Carlos Sainz: “Our speed was good and we could overtake quite some cars. Then we got stuck behind Spinelli for seventy kilometres, resulting in a loss of ten minutes. In terms of speed we could easily match the Minis, which proves that the HRX Ford is one of the fastest cars in the field. All in all an easy day, I barely left a drop of sweat!"

No dust

Erik Wevers also had a strong day: he finished sixteenth. "We haven't had a problem with dust and it was a nice drive. A day without problems! It's nice that we can start the next stage sixteenth. That means less dust and a better position."

Monday is going to be a long day. Today the competitors will cross the Andes Cordillera, to begin the Chilean part of the rally. Before the special stage starts the drivers has to overcome a connection of more than 500 kilometres. Participants will then begin a special stage of more than 300 kilometres, where high speeds will be achieved.
