After obtaining their first success in the SSV category thanks João Ferreira on stage 8, Yamaha achieved a magnificent 1-2-3 finish for the first part of the marathon stage. Today, Ricardo Porem won in front of Ferreira and Ignacio Casale.
“It was a good stage. We had a good pace. It’s funny driving in the dunes. The Empty Quarter is amazing and I liked the stage a lot. The sand wasn’t that soft, it was okay. With Yamaha, the dunes are amazing, the car is very fast on the dunes. We are happy that we have finished the first part of the marathon stage without problems. That was the main goal for today. There’s nothing to do on the car, it’s all ok”.
