AER Update!

Truck: JACINTO and KOVACS are fighting
Tomas TOMECEK restored the order in the rankings of the truck category finishing 6th of the stage. Of course, The Czech TATRA stays on top in the general rankings, but behind the battle is still on. Indeed, Miklos KOVACS which won yesterday’s stage, was beaten back by JANCITO and her MAN taking back her second place. But KOVACS hasn’t said his last word as he is only 2’50 behind the Portuguese, so the last stage of the race should be very interesting between the two.

Mauritania takes profit of the generosity of the participants.
Since its debuts, many solidarity operations took place on the SONANGOL AFRICA ECO RACE, thanks to very nice participants. Today, 9th of January, were given over 300 toys for the children of the School of Akjoujt, all collected by Team Motards du Desert.

Later in the same day, a truck from the organisation delivered solar panels at The Kaïma des petits kindergarden, in Nouakchott, given by team Elite Racing and The rally queen, Julia SCHRENK, accompagned by Martin FONTYN.

Friday 10th of January, the 10th stage between Toueila, in Mauritania and Saint Louis, in Senegal will be the last selective sector of the SONANGOL AFRICA ECO RACE 2014. In other words, after the 202km of stage, the rankings will be freezed and the winner of each category will be known. But only after this last straight line! Remember anything can happen in Africa.

"What could possibly go wrong"
CBVRacing. "The race (Dakar) is what it is, it is being offered to racers, if they chose to sign up they should know that there are only 5 outcomes at the end of the two weeks: Finish, Mechanical, Abandon, Injuries, Death."
