5th for Chicherit in stage 3, 6th for Gordon
After more than 3 hours racing, just 10 seconds separate the two Team Toyo Tires drivers
In their best results of the Dakar so far, Chicherit in his Jefferies buggy has placed 5th arriving at the finish of today's special 3 hours, 5 minutes and 44 seconds after his 24th placed start this morning. Chicherit and co-driver Alex Winocq brought their buggy home 6 minutes 52 seconds behind the Spaniard Roma in his All4 Racing Mini who won the special.
Chicherit moves to 29th overall, 2 hours, 19 minutes behind the lead. An outright win is impossible but several teams are ahead of him and with today's pace, 5 or 10 places could be made up as the rally progresses to its finale.
Gordon started slightly further down this morning but pressed hard from his 238th place start to bring his HST Gordini in with a time just 10 seconds slower than Guerlain Chicherit. His pace takes him to 34h overall, out of contention for the win but with much to do to be the number 1 Team Toyo Tires driver in the 2014 Dakar.
Baldwin remains out on the course and more news will follow when he arrives.
