The Dakar is heading towards “the grand finale”. Every competitor was driving strategically today. On the one hand, they do not want to force a vehicle breakdown so close to the finish. On the other hand, competitors in contention for a podium finish, have to push their cars to the limit, which requires taking risks. The Toyota teams have no opportunity to sit back and relax; they must keep the pressure on. The strategy paid off with four Toyota drivers ending up in the top ten today: Giniel De Villiers in 4thplace, Erik Van Loon in 7th, Conrad Rautenbach in 8th and Nani Roma in 9th (putting Roma 4th in the overall rankings). The final surf to Buenos Aires has begun.

What might have been the most difficult stage of the rally, could arguably be the most exciting one as it comes to this year’s podium candidates. With three Toyota driver’s, Giniel in the #302 in 6th, Conrad in the #320 in 7th and Nani in the #305 coming in 10th, all finishing again within the top ten, the podium is still a possibility.

Nobody expected that yesterday would bring a massive mud avalanche, putting the brakes on stage 9. The natural disaster would divert competitors and support vehicles hundreds kilometers and six to seven hours to the bivouac, causing everyone to arrive late and tireless inspections. With stage 9 cancelled, all competitors retain their current rankings. Officials have decided to keep the 751 km course for stage 10. With the finish in Buenos Aires in sight, the race is not determined yet. Toyota is still has a chance at claiming a piece of the podium.
