18:35 - truck
A close battle in the general behind Nikolaev

Whilst the Russian driver of the Kamaz-Master team boasts a lead of 32'23" at the top of the truck category, behind him the battle promises to be feisty between the Tatra driver Martin Kolomy and Kamaz driver Ayrat Mardeev.

Only 1'47" separate the two men in second and third place. The same is true for the Kamaz driven by Andrey Karginov and Gérard De Rooy's Iveco, who only needs to regain 7'05" to take fourth place.

18:31 - truck
506 - Kolomy loses out big time

Czech driver Martin Kolomy, slowed by problems on the special, has lost 19'30" on completion of the day's stage. He has just finished and for the moment lies behind the Iveco of Miki Biasion in twelfth place, but should drop further down, in light of the time lost, as other drivers finish.

18:28 - truck
505 - Mardeev finishes between Versluis and Loprais

The Russian driver of Kamaz 505, Ayrat Mardeev, has sneaked in between the unfortunate Verslius and Loprais, to finish 5'41" behind his victorious team-mate. Third in the general standings yesterday, Mardeev could take advantage of Martin Kolomy's problems to move up the standings.

18:24 - truck
The finishers behind Karginov

3'39" Behind Andrey Karginov and his Kamaz, Dutchman Peter Van de Bosch has grabbed second place, ahead of his countryman Martin Van de Brink, 4'12" behind Karginov.

Fourth place goes to general standings leader Eduard Nikolaev, 5'03" the stage winner, 27 seconds in front of Pieter Versluis and 43" ahead of Ales Loprais. Martin Kolomy has been held up by technical problems in the last section.

18:20 - truck
510 - Karginov wins

Andrey Karginov has avoided problems to win this special full of surprises for the trucks: though Peter Versluis (at the finishing line with a puncture) and Ales Loprais, who had a puncture on the special stage, finish after him, they will not finish in the same places in the stage positions.

The Dutchman trails by 5'30 and the Czech by 5'46", which will probably not be sufficient to see them finish in the top 3.


18:04 - truck
502 - Van Vliet stopped

The crew of the Man truck stopped after the last time check point whilst they were in second place. It is not possible to determine the cause of this incident.

17:49 - truck
Karginov now leads

At less than fifty kilometres from the finish, Andrey Karginov is the new leader in the truck special stage. At the wheel of his Kamaz, he leads the Man driven by Marcel Van Vliet by 2'01" and the DAF of Peter Van den Bosch by 4'29", who in turn is directly threatened by Eduard Nikolaev's Kamaz, 11 seconds behind.

Following them, the battle is still raging between Mardeev's Kamaz and Van den Brink's Ginaf (12 seconds behind) for fifth place.

17:18 - truck
509 - Versluis loses ground

Dutchman Pieter Versluis has also encountered problems on the special stage. He has lost the lead after 215 km following a ten minute sop for an as yet unknown reason.

17:16 - truck
503 - Loprais on his way again

The Tatra driver has lost around twenty minutes changing a wheel after a puncture.

17:02 - truck
Loprais at a standstill

The Tatra team's Czech driver has ground to a halt after 273 km of the special stage, after suffering a puncture. He is changing his wheel with the rest of his crew. He was in fourth place on the stage with a lead of over 4 minutes on his team-mate Martin Kolomy.

16:57 - truck
Far from over after 195 km

Pieter Versluis has now has the edge over Ales Loprais, who is timed at 28" behind the first placed Man truck driver.

The second Tatra on the stage, driven by Martin Kolomy, has lost 4'27" on the leader, in front of Russian Andrey Karginov's Kamaz, 5'11" behind the Man, who in turn is being closely watched by Marcel Van Vliet in his Man truck.

The Dutchman is in front of Ayrat Mardeev and his Kamaz (6'17" behind the stage leader), the DAF of Van den Bosch, the Kamaz driven by Nikolaev and the Ginaf belonging to Van de Brink.

The last four of this group are placed within a 20 second interval.

15:45 - truck
Struggle for fifth place

The Man driven by Marcel Van Vliet occupies fifth place, 4'38” behind the stage leader. However, he is tied for this place with the Ginaf of Jos Smink, both only 5 seconds in front of Peter Van den Bosch's Daf and 6 seconds ahead of the Kamaz driven by Eduard Nikolaev. An almighty struggle is going on for fifth place.

15:42 - truck
Loprais fighting it out with Versluis after 132 km

At this time check point, only 5 seconds separate the two truck drivers. Ales Loprais and his Tatra have a slight lead over the Man driven by Dutchman Pieter Versluis.

Another Tatra, driven by Martin Kolomy occupies third place, 2'52" Loprais but ahead of Andrey Karginov's Kamaz, 4'07" behind the stage leader.

14:26 - truck
Loprais under pressure after 64 km

The driver of Tatra truck No. 503 is leading the dance in the truck special ahead of the Man driven by Pieter Versluis by 34" and the Tatra of Martin Kolomy, his countryman and team-mate, by 1'10".

Marcel Van Vliet (Man) is 1'41" behind the stage leader, ahead of Kamaz team's Andrey Karginov 1'59" behind Loprais, who is followed by par Eduard Nicolaev, 2'13" behind the Czech. Ginaf driver Martin Van den Brink is currently seventh, 3 minutes behind the provisional leader.

13:17 - truck
The trucks get down to business

The fight between the heavyweight constructors resumes with renewed vigour today. Czech driver Ales Loprais behind the wheel of his Tatra has just started the special stage ahead of Pieter Versluis (Man) and Andrey Karginov (Kamaz).

Córdoba–La Rioja: parallel lines

All the competitors must cover the same distance, but that doesn't mean the cars and trucks race on the same course as the motorcycles and quads. Nevertheless, the challenges on their respective menus are quite similar. Today we'll alternate winding tracks and fast roads as they move from forested sectors to much more open plateaus.

A typical course for the Argentinean Rally. After 37 km on the road, they'll have to tackle a sector just over 350 km long before a 242 km link section. Seeing the many unexpected turns of events during yesterday's stage in the Car, Truck and Motorcycle categories, it goes without saying that the overall classifications are still up for grabs.

Stéphane Peterhansel's buffer grew considerably but isn't insurmountable, the KTM pilots have a wafer-thin margin, and the battle of the juggernauts is yet to be decided.
