Dakar Rally 2014: Stage win for Nasser Al Attiyah, Roma still overall leader.






X-raid and the Monster Energy X-raid Team celebrated a successful border crossing to Chile. In SS08 from Salta to Calama, Nasser Al-Attiyah and Lucas Cruz secured their first stage win in this year’s Dakar Rally.

Just a minute behind them, the two Frenchmen Stéphane Peterhansel and Jean-Paul Cottret took their black Mini All4 Racing to second place. While Argentinean Orlando Terranova and his Portuguese navigator Co-driver Paulo Fiúza, the unlucky fellows of Sunday’s stage, finished fourth, followed by Krzysztof Holowczyc / Konstantin Zhiltsov in the red Mini. Nani Roma and Michel Périn had to settle for finishing sixth, in the eighth stage.

In stage eight, Al-Attiyah finally celebrated his first stage win. He started from second position into the stage and quickly closed in on Carlos Sainz in his buggy. "We opted for pushing right from the start and we did a good job," said the driver from Qatar who still is annoyed due to the one-hour time penalty he received following SS05.

"I still am very disappointed because of this penalty and I have to think of this hour again and again. But now I’ll try to forget it. Tuesday there will be more dunes and I hope this will be good for us."

By finishing runner-up, Peterhansel succeeded in reducing the lead of his team-mate Roma in the overall standings to some 24 minutes. "The special stage was short but dynamic," he said. "I saw the dust of Nasser and Carlos but wasn’t able to fully match their pace. In addition, the subsoil differed a lot from the one in Argentina and again and again I believed that we had a puncture as the car tended to pull."

In the overall standings, Terranova keeps on closing in on Giniel de Villiers (Toyota). With Monday’s eighth stage contested, the South African’s lead over Terranova amounts to just four minutes. "We quickly closed in on De Villiers, but overtaking in all the dust proved to be impossible," revealed the Argentinean. "On the other hand, we didn’t take any unnecessary risks as we wanted to avoid making a mistake or suffering a puncture."

Holowczyc also survived without encountering any major problems. "We made good progress without any special highlights," said the Pole. "We certainly could have pushed harder but we talked to Sven Quandt and agreed upon not taking any risks, from now on." Nonetheless, he could work his way up to seventh position in the overall standings, right behind Carlos Sainz.

For Nani Roma, the first part of the special stage went absolutely according to plan. Then however, the Catalan suffered two punctures and consequently lost several minutes. "This was neither a great special stage nor a great day for us," he said annoyed. "I haven’t got the slightest idea what could have caused the two slow punctures. But the day is over and we have to look ahead." After all, Roma has to defend his lead for another five days.

Today’s ninth stage from Calama to Iquique will take the Dakar field from the mountains back to sea level. Following a 37-kilometer liaison, the drivers start into the 422-kilometer special stage that will end right at the bivouac. In the closing stages, the competitors will have to battle their way through a 150-kilometer dune section. In the earlier stages of the special stage, sandy sections alternate with solid track surfaces. The final metres to the finish will be spectacular as the cars will thunder down a long downhill section from the dunes to the bivouac.
