 With his second podium finish in a row, Ignacio Casale has confirmed his ability to shine amid the dunes as well as the potential of his Yamaha in the sand, which is a good omen for the Chilean involved in the development of T3 for the Japanese brand.

 “It was an excellent stage! The start of this Dakar wasn’t easy for us, we had lots of worries and many problems. But we’re developing a vehicle that has potential and which is promising. We’ve been in the dunes for a few days and I feel good on them, it’s my speciality. We drove a good stage starting behind Ricardo. That said, the dunes were soft and it was easy to get stuck. We did a good jo and I hope we can get a good result today”.
