Nasser Al-Attiyah continues to set the pace for the Dakar 2015 with a fifth stage victory; the Qatari is two stages away from winning his second Dakar. Despite the blistering pace, Orlando Terranova and Giniel De Villiers were hot on the Qatari drivers heels from start to finish, arriving 27 seconds and 39 seconds behind him.

Yazeed Alrajhi had mechanical problems with his Toyota just several kilometres into the day’s special and was forced to withdraw. His exit and thier own consistency allowed the MINIs of Krzysztof Holowczyc and Erik Van Loon to move into 3rd and 4th place respectively. The withdrawal of the the 3rd place Toyota is a reminder that even if you beat the other drivers, the Atacama desert and the Andes can conspire to can beat you.
