Interview

“A big duel with the Kamaz”

The Argentinean crew that finished a remarkable fourth place on the 2017 Dakar continues to surprise. In the middle of the season, in taking the reins of Gerard de Rooy’s official team, they won the Morocco Rally with a decent margin of victory and even challenged several cars thanks to the speed of the Italian truck. They will have to confirm their strong form in taking on the always powerful Russian Kamaz team. They come in motivated and ready to battle all the way to the end.

F.V : “It was a big responsibility to drive the factory Iveco truck on the Morocco Rally and happily we were able to take an important victory because it was a first for an Argentinean team on this type of event. For us, beyond the victory, it was a great opportunity to work towards this result, to define everyone’s job to get to know each other better and to know just where we can go on a route as demanding as that of the 2018 Dakar. It is very hard to know at what level we are. For me, it was a good test because after the health problems I had, I was able to judge where I was.”

Yet another dramatic turn of events the day before the finish of the Dakar: Federico Villagra, the second placed driver in the truck category general standings, who was only one second behind the leader this morning, has dropped out of the rally.

Villagra more than one hour behind

Federico Villagra has probably lost the Dakar on the 124 kilometres of the day’s special. Although he was one second behind the general standings leader Eduard Nikolaev this morning, the Argentinean has already lost more than 1 hour and 23 minutes to the Russian at the end of first part of the special.

Villagra in danger!

Federico Villagra is perhaps in the process of losing the Dakar. The Iveco driver, who was leading the special after 46 km, has been at a standstill for 20 minutes at the 79 km point. This is a godsend for Eduard Nikolaev who has an opportunity to open up a big gap over his rival.

Villagra turns the truck race on its head!

Eduard Nikolayev's overwhelming dominance since the start of the rally, which put him 3 h 48 clear of the third-placed driver this morning, had eliminated all his rivals except for Federico Villagra and his never-say-die attitude. The Argentinian's determination is paying off in his home country. The Iveco driver is leading the special at CP2...

Federico Villagra: "We did a clean race"

The second-placed rider in the general classification is banking on the stages in Argentina to make up his deficit to Eduard Nikolayev.

"It was a tough stage. In the first part I had to help the other Iveco truck, which was stuck in the mud. I lost some time, but from then on we did a clean race. The cancellation of tomorrow's stage is bad news for us because we need to...
