Corbett holds onto 20th in Dakar Rally
10 January 2012, 13:57
Mark Corbett and Francois Jordaan (CR4) retained their overall 20th
position in the Dakar Rally in Chile on Monday when they survived one
of the toughest special stages of the 8 000-kilometre race so far.
Stage eight marked the start of the second half of the 14-stage
marathon and took the surviving 111 cars (out of 161 that started in
Argentina on 1 January) a distance of 477 kilometres from Copiapo to
Antofagasta, almost due north up the western side of South America
between the Pacific Ocean and the Andes Mountains.
It was another day of trials and tribulations for the two South
Africans, but they soldiered on to overcome the tough terrain without
losing any positions to their rivals. They remained fourth in the
two-wheel-drive category of the T1 class in their South African-designed
and built Toyota-engined special.
