Gerard de Rooy Wins the Second Dakar Special with the Iveco Powerstar – Stage 3
After 239 clocked kilometres, Gerard de Rooy placed second with the Iveco Powerstar and managed to finish just 2:42 minutes behind stage winner Karginov. “I am very satisfied. We drove at a constant pace and managed to prevent punctures, because that immediately will cost you a good result. We were overtaken by a Kamaz truck, which was cutting corners everywhere. But a moment later he had to stop with a puncture. Today the route really was in favour of Kamaz and therefore I am pleased with the result” said De Rooy. Behind Gerard de Rooy was Pep Vila in his Iveco Trakker Evolution II, as the next fastest Iveco truck in fifth place, only 7:22 minutes behind Karginov. A very good result because this particular Iveco Trakker carries a lot of spare parts. Team driver Jo Adua and his Iveco Trakker also finished in the top ten. Stacey settled for 11th place, with a gap of 18:59 minutes, due to a puncture.
