STATS & MATHS 

Amount of vehicles Total Cars Bikes Quads Trucks 
At Start 431 147 174 40 70
At Finish 204 61 78 15 50
Completed 47,3% 41,5 % 44,8 % 37,5 % 71,5 %

The withdrawal rate was very high this year. Everybody had lots of technical mishaps, many so bad that the vehicle broke down beyond repair, or even burnt to ashes. Bodily injuries were not too severe, except one rider and 2 journalists who died – that is always a tragedy.
This rally was worse than “normal”, usually about 50% finish the rally.

Congratulations to all who made it all the way!
