3rd Stage / AGADIR – TAROUDANT – AGADIR (about 215 km / 3 ERR)
Second night in Agadir, following a loop that distanced us from the shore. The stage has been demanding: small mountain roads required a tight focus both for driving and guidance. This is in the SS, in the mountainous laces that Reda Meziane-Belfkih / Zineb Chemao, crew No. 31 Mustang, have suffered a technical incident. A first stop followed by a second finally stopped their vehicle. They were 4th in general classification of yesterday, their misadventure relegates them to the twentieth place this evening.
Note: the winner of the Rally Morocco classic 2013 edition, Fritz Kaiser, Mercedes 300 SL, signed the scratch time on the special 8th.
At Taroudant, at the bottom of the High Atlas, the competitors had lunch at an excellent lunch at the Restaurant Gazelle d’Or, known for its gourmet cuisine.
In the afternoon, change of scenery. It’s on a track that the drivers were able to express themselves for a special regularity stage awaited. The track is very turny and fast.
The times, intractable, delivered their verdicts: Cerezo (5) wins this SS!
