JANUARY 5, 2020 – JANUARY 13, 2020 | Dakar Rally 2020 Saudi Arabia | STAGE 1 – STAGE 8
It’s now about a week since the Dakar started. During this period a lot happened! In a good way, of course.. The Firemen Dakar team proved to us that no matter what the conditions are they keep going
Stage 1: Jeddah – Al Wajh
Liaison > 433 km – Special > 319 km
ASS: 16th place
Stage 2: Al Wajh – Neom
Liaison > 26 km – Special > 367 km
ASS: 19th place
Stage 3: Neom – Neom
Liaison > 77 km – Special > 427 km
ASS: 4th place
This was a quite special outcome. The team started that day from 19th place and finished as 4th. Unfortunately, is this outcome impossible. Because the Dakar had technical failure with timing. But on the bright side, the team started the next day from the 4th place.
Stage 4: Neom – Al-`Ula
Liaison > 219 km – Special > 453 km
ASS: 20th place
The Firemen Dakar team started good, till they had problems with the gearbox. It caused more than an hour delay for the team, despite that they reached the finish anyway!
Stage 5: Al-`Ula – Ha’il
Liaison > 211 km – Special > 353 km
ASS: 19th place
Stage 6: Ha’il – Riyadh
Liaison > 353 km – Special > 477 km
ASS: 17th place
Stage 7: Riyadh – Wadi Al Dawasir

ASS: 18th place
Stage 8: Wadi Al Dawasir – Wadi Al Dawasir
Liaison > 239 km – Special > 477 km
ASS: 15th place
