Finally, you can celebrate it! Stéphane Peterhansel is the
winner of the Dakar 2016 in the category of cars
and difference of two
months, when he finished the test, now is a definitive result.
submitted by X-Raid as a result of an alleged re-fuelling of illegal Peterhasel not
in any of the instances to which it has been presented as such, and
as has been revealed ‘France TV’. In this way, it strengthens the twelfth
Dakar the French pilot and the victory of Peugeot Sport, which may
the annoying asterisk of all your advertising campaigns.
For those who do not remember this episode, there is a need more
two months ago to
situate in the eighth stage of the Dakar 2016. The
special linking Salta and Bethlehem, with the first dose of desert test.
The dunes were then the options of Loeb, but also
they were about to do it with
a Stéphane Peterhansel who took a
refuelling at kilometre 180 of the stage. According to
the version of X-Raid,
this refueling was illegal because the ‘road’ provided by the organisation indicated that
they could only refuel bikes and quads, while Peugeot Sport recognizes this
refuelling, but defending its legality.
X-Raid has been seen as this appeal has been
dismissed by the National Authority for the Sport (ASN), the French Federation
of Motorsport (FFSA) and the National Court of Appeal. The German team
you could still submit an appeal to the FFSA, but everything indicates that
the decision will not change even though X-Raid is to take the legal dispute to that term.
What is clear is that today the result of the Dakar is official and
hence Stéphane Peterhansel and Jean-Paul Cottret are
the winners of the Dakar in 2016 at the wheel of a Peugeot 2008 DKR16.
