Eryk Goczał ain't giving up. The young Pole again gave it his all in the thirteenth and penultimate stage in a bid to catch Rokas Baciuška, the leader of the T4 category. Eryk claimed the last special in the Empty Quarter and gained over 4 minutes on his Lithuanian opponent. 3'24" separate the two men in the standings.
“I worked my heart out… At km 30, we took a big shock and I hurt my left hand. This is the first time I've had to drive with one hand. It was painful, but I did my best, we are there at the finish... Today is a real team victory..."
