Sunderland Pads Lead in Dakar Motos; Loeb Overtakes Peterhansel in Car Race

SALTA, Argentina – Briton Sam Sunderland (KTM) finished third in Tuesday’s eighth stage of the 2017 Dakar Rally to increase his advantage in the motorcycle race, while the lead in the car segment changed hands again, as France’s Sebastien Loeb (Peugeot) forged ahead of teammate Stephane Peterhansel.

Spain’s Joan Barreda (Honda) had the fastest time on the route from Uyuni, Bolivia, to Salta, Argentina, picking up his second stage victory of this year’s competition, but he sits ninth overall by virtue of a one-hour penalty imposed on Day 4.

Sunderland has a lead of 20:58 over Chile’s Pablo Quintanilla.

Frenchman Adrien van Beveren is in third, 28:49 behind the British rider, followed by Austria’s Matthias Walkner, 34:14.

Barreda trails Sunderland by 1:10:53.

In the car race, Loeb bested countryman Peterhansel by 3:35 on Tuesday to take a slim lead over the 12-time Dakar winner in the general classification.

Chile’s Ignacio Casale (Yamaha) prevailed in the quad segment, followed by teammates Sergei Karyakin and Axel Dutrie.

Russian rider Karyakin has the overall lead, with Frenchman Dutrie second and Casale in third. France’s Simon Vitse, who started the day in second place, was forced to withdraw when his machine developed problems.

Martin van den Brink (Renault) was the fastest in the truck race, though only seconds ahead of Federico Villagra (Iveco) and Russia’s Eduard Nikolaev (Kamaz).

Another Russian who rides for Kamaz, Dmitri Sotnikov, is at the top of the general classification, closely followed by Nikolaev and defending champion Gerard de Rooy.
