There is thick fog at the beginning of the special and the helicopter is grounded. the team was thinking that the first special would be cancelled but in fact it was only delayed.
In the meantime reports are coming in that Francisco Lopez won the penultimate stage of this year’s Dakar Rally. whereas last night they were reporting that it was Robby Gordon.
This last stage has no dunes, but is pavement all the way to Santiago. There is rain and low hanging cloud cover.
