Rallye du Maroc 2022: Erik van Loon retaliates with fourth time in Morocco

The second stage of the Rallye du Maroc is not an easy stage. There are many punctures, the navigation is difficult and there is a lot of dust. Erik van Loon and Sébastien Delaunay seize the opportunity to get back to the head of the field and record the fourth time, behind the three Prodrive Hunters. The Toyota Hilux's engine has been repaired and Van Loon is happy with the result.

"It wasn't easy today," Van Loon says. "The engine is fixed, but it does give a little less power now. Nevertheless, the car is still very fast. We punctured after only 2 kilometers, had to search a few times and were in the dust of an Audi for a while. At the end of the test we stopped with Nasser Al-Attiyah, who had broken his fourth tire so we left a wheel there. With all that, we still ended up fourth, which really gives a great feeling!"

During the third stage, a 324-kilometer run around Laâyoune, Erik van Loon wants to take the momentum with him. "The speed is there and we are making few mistakes today, we need to see that maintained over the remaining three days." The first will start tomorrow at 11:03 a.m. (12:03 a.m. Dutch time) and is expected at the finish line around 2:42 p.m. (3:42 p.m. Dutch time). 

Anja van Loon and Lisette Bakker are still on the road. This message will be completed.
