Ari Vatanen also started off around 11 :00, heading for Nema. But Ari had to stop again, at the 644 km point (the special stage is 736 km long), with a broken gearbox. Fate seems to be against the four-times Dakar winner but, like his team-mate, he is showing boundless motivation. The assistance truck, which closes the route, will have to come to the assistance of the Finnish team once more, and we hope to have more news of them at any moment.

Giniel de Villiers and Yoshio Ikemachi reached Bobo without problems, and are using the free day to spend time with their guests.

Tomorrow, we would wage that the there will be good news concerning our two drivers, who have started a veritable marathon to rejoin the race ....
