Drivers and co-drivers fit for second half
Dakar : From the Volkswagen bivouac
On Sunday 8 January the Volkswagen works drivers did not go out to race against the clock but used the Dakar Rally rest day in Nouakchott to recharge their batteries for the second half of the off-road rally. However, the drivers and
co-drivers were not left with much time to relax. "We were able to sleep longer in the morning, afterwards we had some appointments with the press and interviews, in the afternoon there were several internal team meetings”, explained Jutta Kleinschmidt. The co-drivers used the day to familiarise themselves intimately with the road book for the ninth and longest stage. More than 50 Volkswagen guests travelled to the Mauritanian capital to visit the team at the bivouac on the rest day.

Major service on rest day
The Volkswagen factory team's service area was a hive of activity during the Dakar Rally rest day: All five Volkswagen Race Touareg 2 prototypes underwent a thorough inspection. The technicians changed the gearboxes, differentials, brake discs and steering racks as previously scheduled. The work, which the Volkswagen team had started as early as Saturday afternoon, took until late on Sunday evening. The technicians took 24 hours to complete the major service.

Only one Race-Truck
Volkswagen must make do with a single Race-Truck during the second week of the rally. The Race-Truck (#539) with Josep Pujol/Lucas Cruz Senra/François Verbist (E/E/B) stopped on the eighth stage to repair the Sainz/Schulz Race Touareg 2, however the maximum permitted stage time was exceeded as was already the case on the second stage. As a result, the Truck team was not authorised to start the ninth stage. Volkswagen Motorsport Director Kris Nissen: "The team worked fantastically and succeeded in keeping Carlos Sainz in the competition. Unfortunately the Race-Truck team exceeded their maximum time."
