Peterhansel and Mini take Dakar

16 January 2012 |

After the final 29 competitive kilometres of the 2012 Rally Dakar from Pisco to Lima it is official. Stéphane Peterhansel has won his 10th Dakar rally. 

Stéphane did not take any risks on the 14th and final stage. He finished tenth, but thanks to his comfortable lead in the overall standings he won with a totoal time of  38:44:56 hours. %u2028%u2028That is how long it took him to cover nearly 4,000 competetive kilometres from Mar del Plata in Argentina to Peru's capital Lima.

Peterhansel last won in 2007 and no other driver has more overall Dakar wins. %u2028%u2028"When you think of how hard it is to win a Dakar, it's incredible that I've been able to win ten of them. It's been a long time, I've been waiting for five years to win again," he said.%u2028

"To take the victory in South America is a huge relief, it ranks among my best triumphs. Winning the rally for Team X-Raid makes it even more special, since Sven Quandt has been waiting for years for this to happen. I don't know what I could do to go one better. Beating this record is going to be difficult - for the others!"

All Mini Racing drivers finished in the overall top ten. %u2028%u2028Nani Roma was second and Leonid Novitskiy fourth, while Ricardo Leal dos Santos and Krzystof Holowczyc claimed eighth and tenth places overall. %u2028%u2028

American Robbie Gordon won the final stage, finishing fifth overall in his Hummer. %u2028%u2028
