A lot of navigation was planned for this final stage of the OiLibya Rally of Morocco. This fifth stage started with very various tracks toward a first series of dunes. The competitors had an access to a rolling road in a plateau toward a river where they had not to miss the exit! Last kilometers of the stage passed through the dunes in the direction of the arrival. The final podium awaited the heroes of the Moroccan Rally!
Cyril Despres/David Castera (Peugeot) show the best time on final stage.
The winner of the race the crew Nasser Al-Attiyah/Matthieu Baumel (TOYOTA Hilux Overdrive) celebrated their third triumph in Rally Morocco and bring the first victory to Overdrive team.
Carlos Sainz/Lukas Kruz on the wheel of Peugeot finished the race on second place and Russian duo Vladimir Vasilyev/ Konstantin Zhiltsov (Mini) completed top-3 and podium of the Rally.
In 2006, Grégoire de Mévius and Jean Marc Fortin decided to create a new cross Country Rally team. The goal was to create a team built on the performance and professionalism with past WRC experience and people.

Of course, I am happy! First time OVERDRIVE wins Morocco Rally, last year we were second and third. Honestly, to beat Peugeot again after Spain Baja is a very tasty victory. It is a deep frustration for Nani, because we had a small problems with transmission on his car today. He is here, on finish of the rally, but we missed “one and three” to make a fantastic week. Anyway we have the best place and I am happy with all job the team has done this week. All the drivers except Erik Van Loon are on the finish. Erik performed fantastic for the team. Very good atmosphere and I want to congratulate organizers with the high quality of the event

It was a tough week of racing because so many times we had to open the road. We concentrated on finding a good speed each day and doing the best job we could to make time on our rivals wherever we could. There were some interesting navigation sections and Mathieu did a great job all week. This year we have won six races with our Toyota so I’m really happy with the performance and how our preparation for the next Dakar is going.
