Volkswagen driver Giniel de Villiers expands lead
Morocco : Volkswagen Motorsport - Leg 2
On the second day of the Morocco Rally Volkswagen expanded its lead over Mitsubishi to seven minutes. Factory drivers Giniel de Villiers/Dirk von Zitzewitz (RSA/D) celebrated their second stage victory on the 302-kilometre leg – the
longest of the six-day cross-country rally in Eastern Morocco – after having decided the opening leg in their favour as well. For the Volkswagen Race Touareg 2 it was the twelfth stage victory in the 2006 season, and the 35th since 2004. Volkswagen factory driver Carlos Sainz (E) and his co-driver Michel Périn (F) finished the day in third place after a navigation error.

Like many other teams, the Portuguese Carlos Sousa in the Race Touareg of Team Lagos, fielded by the Volkswagen semi-works team Phoenix Sport, lost crucial minutes by searching for the right track to continue in seventh place overall.

Kris Nissen (Volkswagen Motorsport Director)
"Congratulations to Giniel and Dirk – they mastered this difficult day superbly and won the special stage. We are pleased to see that all Race Touareg 2 cars were running perfectly. Yet we still have four long and tough days ahead of us. The rally harbours numerous treacherous aspects.

#201 – Giniel de Villiers : 1st place overall
"We're overjoyed about our second stage victory. Being the first car out made things really difficult. On the first special stage Carlos Sainz was a bit quicker, the second one was ours to grab. On the stretches that were washed out by flooding, navigation was very problematic. In a oued we missed a road where we had to turn off that was hardly discernible. But we noticed the mistake quickly – unlike many others."

#203 – Carlos Sainz : 3rd place overall
"I'm happy about clocking the fastest time on the first stage and all the more upset that we made a navigation error on the second, which caused us to lose a place in the overall classification. Other than that it was a good day, the Touareg was running like a charm."
