No problems whatsoever for Lohr/de Roissard
Dakar Rally : Team Maxdata Mercedes - Leg 2
On the challenging mountain stage, caution was a must.

Five-hour time penalty for exceeding the maximum time allowed for stage one, following an incident.

Ellen Lohr and Antonia de Roissard completed the second
special stage of the 2007 Dakar Rally without experiencing any problems. While the first stage turned out to be a foretaste of what ‘Team MAXDATA Mercedes-Benz' will have to cope with, from tomorrow, in Africa, today's 67-kilometre route around the Portuguese city of Portimao represented a completely different task.

“We opted for a slightly conservative attitude, today, as we were hampered by the dust caused by the cars running in front of us, throughout the special stage,” said Ellen. “Still, we succeeded in passing several opponents, nevertheless.”

Following an unfortunate incident on stage one that made Lohr/de Roissard exceed the maximum time by just very few minutes, they received a five-hour time penalty. Therefore, they dropped back to 141st position, 6:57:01 hours behind the leaders. “It's a pity that we received this penalty,” said Ellen. “On the other hand, the true rally action starts only tomorrow and it's our goal to deliver over the distance.”

The liaison the German-French pairing will have to complete during the course of the rest of Sunday will take it to the Spanish seaport Malaga, where the rally baggage will board the ferry for the overnight transfer to Nador, Morocco. From there, the third stage of the 2007 Dakar Rally, adding up to a total mileage of 649 kilometres and featuring a 252-kilometre special stage across the Moroccan desert, will take the competitors to Er Rachidia.
