Volkswagen in third and fifth at half-way stage
Dakar : Volkswagen Motorsport - Leg 8
The Volkswagen works team defended third and fifth places at the half-way stage during on one of the most bitterly fought Dakar Rally's very. Giniel de Villiers improved from fourth to third on the 568 kilometre eighth stage in the
Race Touareg 2. Mark Miller set exactly the same time as new leader Stéphane Peterhansel on his way to being second quickest between Atar and Nouakchott.
Jutta Kleinschmidt's and Carlos Sainz's day was a series of setbacks: The former third placed driver lost more than one hour and fell back to fifth place, after she got stuck in sand. He Spanish team mate Sainz had a clutch problem at the start of the stage and restarted the stage extremely late. Bruno Saby put in an excellent drive after starting 90 th ; he overtook 80 competitors on the stage which brought him seventh on the day.

Kris Nissen - Volkswagen Motorsport-Director :
“We were hit hard today. Although we are still in the leading group with third and fifth positions the gaps have grown significantly. Mark Miller proved that the Race Touareg 2 is also equally competitive on the most difficult of subsoil with second fastest time." »

N°301 - Bruno Saby :
“That was an excellent stage. Despite the number of overtaking manoeuvres we set seventh best time. We had difficulty passing some of the Race-Trucks. We also stopped for Carlos, and another competitor who had rolled.”

N°303 - Jutta Kleinschmidt :
“We ground to a halt on a straight and had to use the sand boards to build some sort of road to get out again, which cost us 47 minutes. This was followed up by another two tyre failures. Fabrizia and I are obviously very disappointed.”

N°305 - Giniel de Villiers :
“It's amazing to think that we gained a position, because everything went wrong today: Three tyre failures, bogged down once, then we caught up another car, got lost and to cap it all we stopped to clean grass out of the blocked cooler.”

N°309 - Mark Miller :
“The second best time is incredible, particularly as we drove seven kilometres in the wrong direction together with Giniel! At the start we saw Carlos stationary in a river bed, but the ground was too soft to help him. Later Jutta waved us by, as she had only just freed herself. The final kilometres were great fun.”
