Top five for Roma at Day 3 of Dakar 2017

Jan 042017

With over a 1000km of racing already laying in the South American dust, Nani Roma is heading into day three of the 2017 Dakar Rally in confident style; holding firm in a top-five overall position.

“It’s a good taste of things to come I think. The routes are challenging and quite fast, which I like. My team are all working hard together, and the Hilux has performed very well so far. The organizers promised a more challenging Dakar this year and I think they have delivered. Of course we have a long way to go – we climb to up high on stage three so it will be interesting for sure.”

 

Stage three sees the route switch back north towards San Salvador de Jujuy. Crossing over the famous Argentinean ‘Rios’ hot springs territory. The day’s route also represents the first altitude test, with 364km of off-track timed ‘special section’ climbing to a height of nearly 5000meters. Stay tuned!
