Giniel De Villiers wins the special


Giniel De Villiers is among the most experienced drivers on the Dakar and was able to avoid the many pitfalls on stage five to reacquaint himself with victory. Behind the wheel of his Toyota, the South African took the lead at the first time check point and was never under threat.

He completed this 456-km long special 58’’ ahead of his countryman Brian Baragwanath, who has picked up another podium finish this year following second place on the prologue.
