SummaryEdit

BikesEdit

KTM rider Francisco López got his rally off to the best possible start by winning the opening stage, but Husqvarna's Joan Barreda took control of the overall standings by winning the second stage. The Spaniard however lost considerable time in the third stage with navigation problems,[6] handing the lead to defending champion and works KTM rider Cyril Despres, who led by just under three minutes from stage winner López.

Despres however lost 17 minutes to stage winner Barreda during the fourth stage, handing the lead to Yamaha's Olivier Pain. The young French rider held the lead until the end of the seventh stage with some consistent stage times, but hit trouble during the eighth stage with a navigational error.[7] This would mean Pain's teammate David Casteu, who won the fifth stage, headed into the rest day as leader of the overall standings.

More misfortune struck Yamaha however as Casteu struck a cow during the ninth stage, causing the Frenchman to dislocate his shoulder and retire from the rally.[8] Despres was set to re-take the lead of the standings after winning the stage but dropped to second behind teammate Ruben Faria after taking a 15-minute penalty for an engine change. Despres nonetheless took the lead after finishing second during the tenth stage, with Faria losing 12 minutes to the leader during the eleventh stage.

Despite dropping eight minutes to Faria during the twelfth stage, Despres remained in control of the standings until the end of the rally, ending up with a winning margin of just under 11 minutes over Faria. López seemed set to threaten Despres after winning the penultimate stage and closing to within just over eight minutes of the Frenchman, an engine change penalty prior to the final stage cost him any chance of doing so.[9] The Chilean would have to be content with third, nearly 19 minutes behind Despres despite taking the fastest time on the final stage, with Ivan Jakeš and Joan Pedrero completing an all-KTM top five.

Olivier Pain recovered to sixth position after his earlier troubles, whilst Barreda could do no better than 17th after losing considerable time with fuel pump issues on the fifth stage.[10] Kurt Caselli had an impressive debut ride as a substitute for Marc Coma, winning two stages but finishing just outside the top 30 as a result of a navigational error during the eighth stage and engine woes in the penultimate stage.[11]

QuadsEdit

Yamaha's Marcos Patronelli took control of the overall standings by winning the stage ahead of Honda newcomer Sebastian Husseini. The two riders finished 1st and 2nd for the next two stages, Patronelli extending his advantage to 15 minutes after the fourth stage, before mechanical problems for Husseini during the fifth stage cost him several hours.[10] This gave Patronelli a lead of almost an hour and 20 minutes over Ignacio Casale, also aboard a Yamaha, who closed the gap slightly with a win on the sixth stage.

Patronelli however began to extend his advantage once more over the following stages, with Casale dropping 23 minutes during the eleventh stage. With a cushion of one hour 50 minutes, Patronelli maintained his advantage over Casale until the end of the rally. Rafał Sonik completed a Yamaha 1–2–3, albeit over three hours adrift of Patronelli.

Łukasz Łaskawiec briefly held third position after finishing second during the fifth stage, but delays in the sixth and twelfth stages dropped him to a final finishing position of 13th. Sarel van Biljon also held third in the overall standings after winning the eighth stage, but major delays during the following stage left the South African finishing outside the top 20.

CarsEdit

Qatar Red Bull driver Carlos Sainz was the winner of the first stage, and despite losing twenty minutes to X-Raid's Stéphane Peterhansel during the second stage, the two-time World Rally champion was declared the leader of the overall classification having lost time trying to pass a waypoint due to a fault with his GPS.[12] However, this decision was later reversed,[13] handing the stage win and the lead of the standings back to Peterhansel.

The Frenchman's closest challenger initially would prove Sainz's teammate Nasser Al-Attiyah, who closed to within five minutes of Peterhansel following wins in the third and fourth stages. Victory in the sixth stage brought the Qatari within one minute 20 seconds of the rally lead, but an engine problem during the ninth stage put an end to his challenge.[14] With Sainz having retired after the sixth stage, also because of engine problems,[15] it was an event to forget for the newly formed Qatar Red Bull team.

This meant that Peterhansel now had a lead of 49 minutes over Imperial Toyota's Giniel de Villiers, the South African able only to erase seven minutes of that advantage during the remaining stages. In this period, a battle for third emerged between X-Raid drivers Nani Roma and Leonid Novitskiy, with the latter holding the advantage until the former won the twelfth stage. Novitskiy however re-gained the advantage after Roma stopped during the penultimate stage to allow Peterhansel to run in convoy with him, so as to ensure overall victory for his teammate.[16] Roma eventually finished fourth, eight minutes behind Novitskiy. Roma's hopes of challenging Peterhansel for victory were negated when the Spaniard lost over an hour during the sixth stage as a result of becoming stuck in a dune.[15] Orlando Terranova made it four X-Raid drivers in the top five having won the tenth stage.

It was a difficult rally for Robby Gordon, who finished only fourteenth overall despite a late pair of stage victories. The American had a transmission problem in the opening stage[17] and rolled his Hummer in the fourth stage,[18] leaving him trying to make up for lost time for the remainder of the rally. X-Raid driver Krzysztof Hołowczyc was eliminated from the running after the third stage having sustained back and rib injuries in a crash.[19]

TrucksEdit

Defending champion Gérard de Rooy took control of the event initially with victories in the first three stages for Iveco, building a seven-minute cushion over Tatra's Aleš Loprais. The Czech driver then took the lead of the overall standings after the fourth stage as de Rooy hit delays, but lost his advantage after becoming stuck in the sand during the following stage.[10] This handed the lead of the rally back to de Rooy, who led by just over five minutes from Kamaz driver Eduard Nikolaev after the fifth stage.

The Dutchman extended this advantage to 22 minutes with back-to-back victories in the sixth and seventh stages, but disaster struck during the ninth stage – turbo failure, steering problems and a puncture conspired to drop de Rooy by nearly an hour.[8] This gave Nikolaev the lead of the rally with 18 minutes in hand from Tatra's Martin Kolomy, though the Kamaz of Ayrat Mardeev would take second position after the eleventh stage and Andrey Karginov would move ahead of Kolomy into third position after victory in the twelfth stage.

Another victory in the penultimate stage allowed Karginov to move ahead of Mardeev, albeit some 36 minutes behind eventual victor Nikolaev. Karginov however lost out on the runner-up position during the final stage, with Mardeev doing just enough to clinch second by a margin of under a minute. Behind the all-Kamaz podium, de Rooy recovered to fourth position overall after winning the eleventh stage, 41 minutes behind Nikolaev, with Kolomy fifth and Loprais in sixth after his earlier troubles.

Miki Biasion ran third early on for Iveco, but was ruled out of contention after hitting severe delays during the fourth stage, going on to finish 13th overall. Former winner Hans Stacey meanwhile was forced to retire from the event after rolling his Iveco during the sixth stage.[20]

Notes:

  • ^1  — Carlos Sainz and Timo Gottschalk were initially retroactively recognised as the winners of the second stage after a problem with Global Positioning System satellites used by rally organisers meant that the timing system did not register their passing a waypoint on the stage, and they lost twenty minutes trying to pass the marker.[12] After further investigation however, the race officials decided to reverse this decision, handing the stage win back to Stéphane Peterhansel and Jean-Paul Cottret.[13]
  • ^2  — A swollen riverbed during Stage 8 meant that only five cars were able to reach the end of the stage. As a result, all competitors who failed to make the finish were awarded the same time as Stéphane Peterhansel and Jean-Paul Cottret, meaning the gaps between the leaders in the overall classification did not change.[22]

FatalitiesEdit

It was reported that, on the evening of 9 January, two people died as a result of a collision between a taxi and the support vehicle for the 'Race2Recovery' team, which is made up of ex-military servicemen from the UK. The team members travelling in the support vehicle were taken to hospital along with the four surviving passengers of the taxi.[23]

On 11 January, a competitor in the motorcycle category, Frenchman Thomas Bourgin, was killed in a road accident with a Chilean police car whilst travelling to the start of the day's stage. He was running 68th overall at the time of the incident.[24]
