Navigation, the key to ‘Dakar’ success
Posted on Jan 1, 2005, 13:08

Wolfsburg (01 January 2005). Not to lose your way in the desert, always choose the right direction – this is one of the Dakar Rally’s greatest challenges

.

Navigation is the magic word when the sign-posted streets peter out after the rally armada crosses to Africa on 2nd January. Then it is not only pure driving skill, the technical qualities of the Volkswagen Race-Touareg and an expert team in the background that count. It is then state-of-the-art technical aids, but also total mastery and knowledge of navigation, solid preparation and a wealth of experience that guarantee successful orientation in the wilderness.

American Gordon makes Dakar History

BARCELONA, Spain (AFP) – America’s Robby Gordon, driving a Volkswagen, won the first stage of the Dakar rally, a 6km super special, on the Castelldefels beach near Barcelona.

It was a first ever victory by an American in the car category of the rally. He clocked 4min 20.2sec to beat Japan’s Mitsubishi driver Hiroshi Masuoka, the winner in 2002 and 2003, by 2.7sec and South Africa’s Giniel De Villiers, in a Nissan, by 3.5sec.

“Really it wasn’t an easy stage at all, because of the softness of the sand on the course, especially after the jumps,” said Gordon, a former NASCAR and Champ Car driver in the United States.
