Dakar Rally 2014: Toyota´s De Villiers and Von Zitzewitz moved up to third.






A fighting sixth place under disadvantageous conditions on Sunday’s seventh special stage saw South Africa’s Giniel de Villiers of South Africa and German co-driver Dirk von Zitzewitz (Toyota Imperial Hilux) move into third place overall after starting the day fourth.

It was a frustrating stage for the 2009 champions, with the high altitude sapping the normally-aspirated, petrol-engined Toyota of power. The effect was compounded by the fact that it was a very fast stage run at full throttle for much of the time. Wild llamas also proved to be an unusual hazard and De Villiers and Von Zitzewitz were fortunate to narrowly miss one.

The racing section was won by Spain’s Carlos Sainz and Timo Gottschalk of Germany (SMG Buggy), who finished 4:45 minutes ahead of Nasser Al-Attiyah of Qatar and Spanish co-driver Lucas Cruz (X-raid Mini). Third were defending champions Stephane Peterhansel and Jean Paul Cottret of France in their X-raid Mini (+7:26) followed by Nani Roma of Spain and French co-driver Michel Perin, also in a X-raid Mini (+8:56).

Roma and Perin remain in the overall lead with an advantage of 31:53 minutes over Peterhansel and Cottret. De Villiers and Von Zitzewitz are 46:23 mins in arrears and 13:50 mins ahead of fourth-placed Orlando Terranova of Argentina and Portuguese co-driver Paulo Fiuza (Mini). Fifth are Al-Attiyah Qatar and co-driver Cruz (+01:18:24 hours) ahead of Sainz and Gottschalk in the SMG Buggy (+01:50:42). Both Al-Attiyah and Sainz are carrying a one-hour penalty for missing a way point.

"It was a fast, flat-out stage at high altitude that suited our diesel rivals better than it did us," said Giniel de Villiers. "It was frustrating as we just didn’t have the power to fairly contest the stage. We were also slowed by a puncture within the first 100 kilometres. We managed to limit the damage to our closest rivals (Nani Roma and Stephane Peterhansel) and have been helped by Orlando’s (Terranova) penalty. We look ahead to tomorrow and our first special stage in Chile."

It was another long and disappointing day in the dust for De Villiers’ South African team-mates Leeroy Poulter and Rob Howie in the second Toyota Imperial Hilux. After starting in 26th position on the road and 29th in the general classification, Dakar rookie Poulter and Howie came in 68th on the stage, 3h 13m 48s behind the leaders and have dropped to 30th overall.

“We were doing well until we had a steering concern, which led to us being stuck on the side of the road trying to solve the problem and fix it”, said Poulter, who is experiencing his first Dakar. “We managed to succeed just before the T4 support truck arrived and lost almost three hours. The rest of the stage went relatively well. We are disappointed to have fallen further back, but we’ll continue to do our best and see if we can make up some time on Monday.”
