Volkswagen's birthday boy Carlos Sainz takes third
Tunisia : Volkswagen Motorsport - Leg 2
Volkswagen works drivers Carlos Sainz and Giniel de Villiers finished the Tunisian Rally's second stage in fourth and fifth positions on the day. The day's route ran along a 327 kilometre loop around the desert oasis Nekrif close to
the Libyan border. After two of the seven stages, Carlos Sainz, who celebrated his 44th.
P birthday on Wednesday, holds third place in his Volkswagen Race Touareg 2 behind Mitsubishi driver Stéphane Peterhansel and stage winner Jean-Louis Schlesser (Schlesser-Ford). Giniel de Villiers is fifth overall in the second Race Touareg.

The third stage heads 351 kilometres southwards to El Borma on the Algerian border. The competitors must conquer the first large sand dunes on the way.

Kris Nissen - Volkswagen Motorsport Director :
« Both cars ran perfectly from the technical point of view, both drivers lost some time in the middle sector through the stones because they didn't push to the limit. The result isn't satisfying. We are currently 0.2 to 0.3 seconds per kilometre slower than Mitsubishi; we have to find a solution.»

N°201 - Giniel de Villiers :
« We made a lot of pressure at the start of the stage and got past Hiroshi Masuoka when he had to replace a tyre. We were very careful on the stony middle section, since we didn't want to risk having a tyre failure. We lost several minutes to our rivals, but the tough stages are still to come. »

N°203 - Carlos Sainz :
« We had a good day, our Touareg ran perfectly. We were quick, but didn't take any big risks. It goes without saying that I would have liked to have won the stage on my birthday, however it wasn't quite enough. »
