Presented by: Ben Constanduros All four TOYOTA GAZOO Racing crews completed the seventh stage of the 2020 Dakar Rally which saw crews take on a gruelling 546-kilometre special stage across varied terrain littered with sand dunes from Riyadh to Wadi Al Dawasir. Nasser Al-Attiyah and navigator Mathieu Baumel again set the fastest time for the team just 2min 12sec behind the stage winners, maintaining their second place in the overall rankings with a gap of ten minutes. While the stage started with small dunes, the crew’s initial charge was hamstrung by the fast tracks which favoured their two-wheel-drive competitors. The day was marked by the sad passing of Portuguese motorcyclist and 2013 FIM Cross-Country World Champion, Paulo Gonçalves. TOYOTA GAZOO Racing joins the Dakar Rally family in mourning Paulo’s passing and extends its sincerest condolences to his family, friends and teammates at Hero Motosports Team Rally. 【TOYOTA GAZOO Racing 】
