In stage 4, Marcel came in 4th moving the team up to 4th position in the general ranking!

The long special of 465 km bringing the team from Al Qaisumah to Riyadh was another succes for team 504. They managed to stay between the Kamaz trucks putting more pressure on them and forcing them to start making mistakes. Karginov got his Kamaz stuck in the mud and lost valuable time dropping him to 7th in the general ranking.

The next three days the bivac will remain in Riyadh allowing the service team some deserved rest.

Enjoy some great race pics of todays stage!

On the 255 km special on January 4th Marcel Snijders and his team finished in a fantastic 3th position just 3 minutes behind the leader. With this fantastic result the team is moving the Iveco towards the top 5 of the rankings. In the overall standing they are now just over a minute away from the no. 5 Loprais.

Marcel reported from Al Qaisumah "We had a perfect day. The truck is very fast and Janus is driving like a real pro! We had no tire issues or any other problems, but we did break a window in the dunes due the heavy jumps we made". It is great to see how competitive the truck is compared to the Kamaz trucks who are currently leading the race with a no. 1,2,3 and 4th position. Tomorrow team 504 will start between them.

Monday 03.01.2022 - with a special stage of 338 km our team can expect a tough day. The first dune sections are also scheduled and the heat for the top positions in the rankings is on!

Yesterday's stage was tough on navigation and the Marcel was very frustrated missing a waypoint. The damage in the overall standing however was limited as 80% of the contenders also missed it. The truck is fast and competitive, we raced a long time with Macik (CZE) and where still able to overtake some competitors after the time lost not finding the waypoint, thus Marcel.

Team 504 starts today from an overall 8th position
