Dakar Rally: Feautured; Monster Peugeot 2008 DKR.

Peugeot Sport team principal Bruno Famin  five days ago, said
getting three 2008 DKRs ready to start the Dakar
Rally is a first victory for the team.
Peugeot ' s Dakar project began just one year ago
and the French manufacturer has designed and
developed its two -wheel -drive diesel- powered car
over the past 12 months .
" It' s been an incredible journey to be here and to
be ready for the Dakar , " said Famin .
" We are ready on time . We don ' t only have three
cars lined up , but we have three very well finished
cars .
" We would have liked to have done two or three
times the number of kilometres in testing that we
did, but we feel we've done quite a lot of
preparation.
" There 's a good spirit in the team and we have a
strong level of experience . Everybody is now ready
for the start . "
The 2008 DKRs will be driven by five -time car
class winner Stephane Peterhansel and 2010
winner Carlos Sainz.
Five- time motorcycle winner Cyril Despres will
make his car class debut in the third car.
Peugeot won the Dakar Rally four times, from 1987
to 1990 , when the rally ran from Paris to Dakar in
west Africa .
The 2015 edition began in Buenos Aires , Argentina
on Sunday and includes stages in Bolivia and Chile
before it finishes back in Buenos Aires on January
17.
