    The second part of the marathon stage between Tacna and Arequipa started even before the start of the first car competitors by Daniel Elena's punch.
    Sébastien Loeb's co-driver, who competed on the Peugeot 3008 DKR - PH Sport, did not mince words about the Dakar organization, pointing out an error in the road-book. Sébastien Loeb had already mentioned the subject at the arrival of the stage before yesterday between San Juan de Marcona and Arequipa, explaining to a large extent his heavy loss of time.
    "It's back to a new stage ... without any motivation! All know that if I'm in the tub this morning, it's for Seb and in the name of our friendship, for our partners, for the team and for you, our fans, says Daniel Elena on social networks.
    When I make a mistake, I recognize it. I have always recognized him and I can be proud to be someone right. I am extremely disappointed to see that the people who manage an event with the reputation of the Dakar are not able to. I am a novice perhaps in their eyes in Rally Raid.
    What about my experienced colleagues who also saw this error in the road book? Know the organizers, that my head is not here but already in Monte Carlo and that my next month of January will not happen with you, but the Africa Eco Race, because yes, your discipline is a beautiful discipline . "
    Now we have to wait for ASO's reaction on this point.

    Here You can see how You can provisionally repair a completely collapsed and broken suspension of a truck in dunes (and some driver's health issues before that): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p7Enh_beM58
    Here in Kamaz video You can see how it happened (a sudden drop on a straight): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T433...youtu.be&t=183

    Pity but the main thing is they can hopefully continue (waiting still for some penalisation for several missing WP after repair).

    Karginov was disqualified for driving away from an incident with a spectator. He drove into a group of spectators and rolled over one of them (he got away with "only" a broken leg). Karginov said he didn't see he hit someone. Hard to judge without an onboard. Video of the incident is in the same Kamaz video @ 5:07: https://youtu.be/T433NVYzHLs?t=307

    @ dimviii: Macík said there was a hole so that the whole truck landed only on one wheel and the suspension collapsed. It's 10 tons heavy thing after all...

    I tried.

    Xavi Colomé, responsible for the roadbook, has given his part of the explanations on the situation where one of the thumbnails (the dot and arrow in one of the "boxes") could cause confusion. "The truth is that we've received critics on the roadbook, especially for the third stage, where Loeb-Elena and other participants were lost. At this place, it's true there was something not precise on the roadbook. In particular at km 177, there's an electricity pole very visible which is a good reference point, which a lot of competitors have used to compare the kilometers (on their tripmaster vs roadbook) and continued. The eletricity pole wasn't at this point, but earlier, at 175,01kms." "It's this that has caused the confusion and the mistake in kilometers the drivers have taken as reference to continue the stage. The distances between the checkpoints and the stages, the roads are correct. But what caused confusion was the position of the electricity pole." Until now, we haven't received a question to fix the mistake in time, as it was same for all drivers. "The analysis has been made by the commissioners and they've decided that this mistake in roadbook was same for all drivers, so any lost time could not be given back. Also, those who have taken the electricity pole as reference point were lost and those who haven't used it were on the right track without problem."
