Skoda Trophee Andros; Hummer Dakar: The winners of the weekend

The Trophee Andros, the French ice racing series in which two a former world champions Formula 1 (Alain Prost and Jacques Villeneuve), resumed its last weekend activities after two weeks break.

A season that does not happen necessarily for the better since some Villeneuve in mind, blame the pilot crew Daccia Prost led away by their little sports driving. The season is all the same very interesting, with the new Skoda Fabia built by the powerful stables Oreca fighting for the win every race meet Daccia and Mini.

Isola 2000 on the circuit in the south of France, Benjamin Riviere (Skoda Fabia) has won both races. The championship, Alain Prost ahead of Jean-Philippe Dayraut (Mini) and Skoda River and Olivier Panis. For Jacques Villeneuve, this second season in the series is even worse than the first because always runs after a first good result. A Isola 2000, he finished fourteenth and sixteenth Friday Saturday, which was downgraded to the rank thirteenth in the championship.

On the other side of the ocean, in South America, the Dakar Rally-Raid continues. Rest yesterday, competitors tackle this week the second half of the course, which will leave Chile to spin to Lima, capital of Peru or the final ranking Sunday.

The stage last Saturday, tracee around the city of Copiapo, saw the Qatari Nasser Al-Attiyah realize a true festival flying his Hummer H3. The former winner (2011 Volkswagen) currently occupies the sixth place in the general standings, 42 minutes behind the leader Peterhansel. Al-Attiyah therefore knows that, barring a major turnaround in front of him, he can not win the ordeal, which allows him to take risks in order to earn the most possible steps for fun. Certainly, Saturday's demonstration flying a spear H3 over 200 km / h in the sand dunes was impressive to say the least!

As head of the general classification, the French Stephane Peterhansel (co-driver Jean-Paul Cottret) seems perfectly controlling the situation aboard the Mini Countryman All-4. Peterhansel eleven minutes ahead of the Polish Krystof Holowczyk, one of his teammates in the German Team X-Raid, official representative of the Mini brand in rally-raids.

The American Robby Gordon in third place, thirteen minutes Peterhansel. Struggling with some problems of reliability on its Hummer H3 during the first week, Gordon has promised to push hard to reduce the gap on the Mini in the coming days. Knowing that for many observers, the driver was already boiling NASCAR limits of his craft, and sometimes even beyond the risk-taking, we say that Gordon can still return to the forefront ... or soon offer the most spectacular images that are a vehicle barrel in the dunes!
