Stage 7: Diamantina – Belo Horizonte

Road connection: 54.38 km – Selective Section: 125.88 km – Road connection: 151.96 km – Total: 336.96 km

The last stage of the Rally Dos Sertoes takes competitors up to the podium located in Pampulha Lake in Belo Horizonte. The three Xtremeplus crews made it to the finish line and receive a strong ovation. Ambrosio and Cadu finished with an outstanding second place in the stage while Torre and Bosse fought until the end and obtained the 4th overall place.

The evening, after the prize giving ceremony, was a Brazilian party with an open bar of Caipirinha!

Carlos Ambrosio – Carlos Eduardo Piacentini Sachs (Cadu) N°204 – 2nd in 1h56’17 -15th overall at 20h57’30: “This last stage was even better than all the others and we are very, very happy. This time, we calculated our risks and we managed to get to the second place of the special stage. I could not compete with the speed of my opponents, but in the turns, because of the great suspensions, I was faster. The Polaris RZR 900XT +40 is awesome!”

Leando Torres / Idali Bosse N208 – 5th in 2h03’22 – 4th overall at 1h08’40: “Mission accomplished, we crossed the finish line! The strategy we adopted these last days paid off and we made it to the end with a beautiful 4th overall place, very close to the podium. The Polaris RZR 900XT +40 is a solid and reliable machine on every kind of road. It was a beautiful race!”

Celio Vinicius Oliveira and Pipo Mirone N2016 – 16th overall at 16h42’10: Unfortunately, the crew broke a rear suspension at kilometer 140.

Carlos Ambrosio / Carlos Eduardo Piacentini Sachs (Cadu) N°204 — 2e en 1h56’17. – 15e au général à 2Oh57’30 : « Cette dernière étape était encore mieux que toutes les autres et nous sommes vraiment très contents. Cette fois, nous avons pris les risques calculés et nous avons réussi à nous classer deuxièmes de la spéciale. Je n’arrivais pas à rivaliser en vitesse de pointe avec mes adversaires mais, dans les virages, grâce à nos extraordinaires suspensions, je passais plus vite. Le Polaris RZR 900XT+40 est une machine géniale ! »

Leandro Torres / Idali Bosse n°208 — 5e au 2h03’22 – 4e au général à 1h08’40 : « Mission accomplie, nous sommes à l’arrivée ! La stratégie que nous avons adoptée ces derniers jours a payé et nous avons pu arriver au bout avec une belle 4e place au général, au pied du podium.

Stage 6: Diamantina – Diamantina

Road connection: 0 km
 – Selective Section: 178.87 km
 – Road Connection: 25.42 km
 – Total : 204.29 km

 

The penultimate stage of the Rally Dos Sertoes — second part of the marathon stage — was not very long but varied and visited the most beautiful landscapes of the region.

While in during the stage Torres was victim of punctures and Oliveira rolled over, Carlos Ambrosio and Cadu climbed to the third step of today’s podium with their Polaris RZR 900XT + 40.

Carlos Ambrosio / Carlos Eduardo Piacentini Sachs (Cadu) N°204 — 3th in 2h55’03’ – 17th overall, 21h37’40 from the winner: “It was a wonderful day for us! The stage was beautiful, even if it had very difficult parts. The RZR 900XT +40 has an enormous potential, the machine has been steady from the beginning and until the end of the stages and it is very comfortable. I had to stop to give one of my tires to Leandro and that made me lose 2 minutes… I would have finished in the second place, but during a race you do not question yourself, you help your team members!”

 

Leandro Torres / Idali Bosse n°208 13th in 3h23’57 – 5th overall, 1h41’45 from the winner: “We didn’t have the right pressure in our tires at the time we left the bivoac of the marathon stage and we had two punctures. Then, for 150 km our radios inside the helmet did not work, which made communication quite hard. To finish the stage and avoid a new flat tire, we did not force to go faster to get to Diamantina.”

 Celio Vinicius Oliveira / Pipo Mirone n°216 14 th in 5h35’24’ – 11th overall, 9h33’38: “I keep learning about the RZR 900XT +40… and I need to learn to keep a pace. At the beginning of the stage I was the fastest, and then I rolled over! We were lucky because we were able to repair and start again, but this time slower, to make it to the bivouac.”

6e étape : Diamantina / Diamantina
Liaison : O km
 – Spéciale : 178,87 km
 – Liaison : 25,42 km
 – Total : 204,29 km

 

Cette avant-dernière étape du Rally Dos Sertoes, deuxième partie de l’étape marathon, n’est pas très longue mais variée et très belle.
Si Torres est victime de crevaisons et Oliveira s’offre un tonneau, Carlos Ambrosio et Cadu montent sur la troisième marche du podium de la journée avec leur Polaris RZR 900XT+40.

Carlos Ambrosio / Carlos Eduardo Piacentini Sachs (Cadu) n°204 — 3e en 2h55’03’ – 17e au général à 21h37’40 : « Une superbe journée pour nous ! La Spéciale était magnifique même s’il y avait des passages délicats. Le RZR 900XT+40 a un énorme potentiel, la mécanique reste constante du début à la fin des étapes et il est très confortable. Je me suis arrêté pour donner une de mes roues à Leandro et cela m’a fait perdre 2 minutes… j’aurai pu terminer deuxième mais en rallye on ne se pose pas ce genre de question, on aide ses coéquipiers ! »

Leandro Torres / Idali Bosse n°208 13e en 3h23’57 – 5e au général à 1h41’45 : « Nous n’avions pas mis la bonne pression dans les pneus au départ du bivouac marathon et nous avons crevé deux fois. Ensuite, pendant 150 km, nous n’avons plus eu de radio dans les casques, ce qui n’était pas simple pour communiqué. Pour terminer la spéciale et éviter une nouvelle crevaison, nous avons levé le pied pour rallié Diamantina. »

Celio Vinicius Oliveira et Pipo Mirone n°216 14e en 5h35’24’ – 11e au général à 9h33’38 : « Je continue mon apprentissage du RZR 900XT+40… et je dois apprendre aussi à être plus régulier. Au début de la Spéciale, j’étais le plus rapide… mais ensuite, j’ai fait un tonneau ! Nous avons eu beaucoup de chance car nous avons pu réparer et repartir, doucement cette fois, pour rentrer au bivouac. »

The first part of the marathon stage, which took the 20 SSV competitors from Sao Francisco to Diamantina, is the longest of the Dos Sertoes Rally with 645 km total.

Celio Vinicius Oliveira / Pipo Mirone N216 – 4th in 5h35’24 – 11th overall, 8h55’37 from the winner: “Beautiful stage, hard but interesting and we are 4th today, and very happy about of performance. I am getting to know the machine better and better and we did not have any technical problems. Once we arrived to the bivouac, Pipo, who trained before the race, had checked out Polaris RZR900XT+30.”

Leandro Torres / Idali Bosse N208 – in 6h00’54 – 6th overall, 1h20’29 from the winner:I am quite happy to arrive to the bivouac. What a difficult and long day! There were so many stones and dangerous ridges. We lost 5 minutes because we had to change a tire and then, in the middle of the selective section, the oil pressure light turned on. We were careful and we able to get to the bivouac in DIamantina, and then, performed our check!”

Carlos Ambrosio / Carlos Eduardo Piacentini Sachs (Cadu) N204 – 17th in 17h35’00 – 17th overall, 20h45’17 from the winner: “The day before, our assistance service was able to fix our RZR and we took the start. Unfortunately, at km 30 of the selective section, I thought we broke a belt, but there was an oil leak and then I understood it was the box. We had to wait for our assistance and it will be repaired tonight…”

5e étape : Saõ Francisco / Diamantina

Liaison : 223,57 km
 – Spéciale : 335,98 km
 – Liaison : 85,89 km
 – Total : 645,44 km

La 1ère partie de l’étape marathon, qui emmène les 20 concurrents SSV de Saõ Francisco à Diamantina, est la plus longue du Rallye Dos Sertoes avec un total de 645 km. Le terrain aussi est l’un des plus difficiles : beaucoup d’endroits trialisants, terrain vallonné, passage de crêtes dangereux… La région de Diamantina est très belle et constellée de nombreux monastères témoignant du passage des Portugais.

 À l’arrivée, étape marathon oblige, il n’y a pas d’assistance. Seul le ravitaillement essence est autorisé et les pilotes et copilotes ont 2 heures pour réviser leur machine.

Celio Vinicius Oliveira et Pipo Mirone n°216 4e en 5h35’24’ – 11e au général à 8h55’37 : « Belle étape, dure mais intéressante et nous sommes 4es donc content de notre journée. Je connais de mieux en mieux la machine et nous n’avons connu aucun problème technique. Arrivés au bivouac, Pipo qui s’était entraîné avant le rallye, a très bien fait la révision du Polaris RZR 900XT+30. »

Leandro Torres / Idali Bosse n°208 8e en 6h00’54 – 6e au général à 1h20’29 : « Je suis vraiment très content d’être à l’arrivée, quelle journée longue et difficile ! Il y avait énormément de cailloux et de crêtes dangereuses. Nous avons perdu 5′ car nous avons dû changer un pneu puis, au milieu de la Spéciale, l’alarme de pression d’huile s’est allumée. Nous avons été attentif mais nous avons pu rallier le bivouac de Diamantina et ensuite, nous avons fait notre révision ! »

Carlos Ambrosio / Carlos Eduardo Piacentini Sachs (Cadu) n°204 — 17e en 17h35’00 – 17e au général à 20h45’17 : « La veille, l’assistance a pu remettre en état notre RZR et nous avons pris le départ. Malheureusement, au km 30 de la Spéciale, j’ai cru que nous avions cassé une courroie mais il y avait une fuite d’huile et j’ai compris que c’était la boîte. Nous avons alors attendu l’assistance et la boîte sera réparée cette nuit… »

Stage 4: Paracatu – Sao Francisco
Road connection: 135.24 km – Selective Section: 363.85 km – Road connection: 86.21 km – Total:585.30 km

This fourth stage did not happened without reminding competitors about the sand of the desert of Jalapao in the state of Tocantin. It was a long special stage, hard and very demanding for the machines, which took men to their limits and caused numerous withdrawals by the end of the day. The selective section was varied, with sand, stones, rivers and it finished crossing a river on a ship that was trapped in the sand because of the delay.

Many competitors did not make it in the given time (6h30’) and it is Ze Helio, the old bike rider who has won the Dos Sertoes Rally, that takes the lead in the SSV (UTV) ranking.

The stage was very rough, Celio Oliveira N°216 and Carlos Ambrosio N°204 took the forfeit for time, while Leandro Torres and Idali Bosse saved the day and climbed up to the 6th place overall.

Leandro Torres / Idali Bosse N°208 – 16th in 3h04’50 – 6th overall, 55’20: “What a day! It was very difficult and so long that it felt like it was never going to end! When I saw the other crew next to the road, I went slower and went prudently. It was the right attitude because 8 UTV did not make it to the bivouac and tomorrow is the marathon stage.”

Celio Vinicius Oliveira and Pipo Mirone N°216 – 19th in 11h10’ – 16th overall 6h25´58: “I broke the rear suspension after landing from a bump… so I took the forfeit time to keep going tomorrow.”

Carlos Ambrosio / Carlos Eduardo Piacenti Sachs (Cadu) N°204: 20th in 11h10 – 15th overall, 6h16’02: “I had a mechanical issue at km 40 of the road connection and I couldn’t take the start of the selective section. I made it to the bivouac carried by a team that had room in their truck. We arrived to the bivouac in Sao Francisco and I took the maximum time, but I can start tomorrow, for the marathon stage.”
