Balkan Offroad Rallye 2017 – Stage 3 Stories - Today was one of the fastest days in the Balkan Offroad Rallye so far, on fast flowing tracks.

Dakar Focus: The New Peugeot 3008DKR Maxi - However, the Peugeot brand does stand a very good shot at least because they seem to have taken another step forward, but also because in Stephane Peterhansel, Cyril Despres, Carlos Sainz, and Loeb, they have some of the top talents around. Indeed, Peterhansel won the event for a record 13th time in January this year. The question now is can he do it for the 14th time and make it three in a row with the Peugeot?
