The stage of the Dakar today led Riwald team from Copiapo to Antofagasta, a trial of 477 km, through the dust! With the result: poor visibility, driving on feeling and watch out when you want to catch up. Because overtaking, that did was where Gert Huzink and Bernhard ten Brinke today were doing.

And with success. They reason a good race today, though it was Bernhard ten Brink not whole talk about weather belting of 2 tyres. In addition, there broke a rim complete in twos, so no, we are not satisfied. But on a 12th place, which is nice of course, but you keep you wonder where we could finish.

Well, we’ve softened the suspensions, but today again two flats,apparently that was not the solution. The car with number 314 is just come back on the bivouac so you men of Wevers Sport can fix it. Now what we are going to do is resist the break balance, so we will see tomorrow if it has helped.
