MOTORSPORT -  DAKAR 2013 - PART 2January 21st 2013 – Best new car, fourth arrival at the finish, ten days among the    Top 20: In Santiago de Chile, the HS RallyeTeam around Matthias Kahle and      Dr. Thomas M. Schünemann celebrates its outstanding performance during the Rallye Dakar 2013. We present some impressive statistics of the successful Dakar-premier in the 4WD-prototype SAM 30D CC.

Standing ovations for the conquerors of the Dakar: The world stood upside down in Santiago de Chile on Sunday, 20th of January 2013. Umpteen thousands of people had come to cheer the heroes of the 35th Rallye Dakar when they passed the finish line. The HS RallyeTeam truly deserves the bath in the crowd. This is the only conclusion that can be drawn if one recaptures the salient performance of Matthias Kahle and Dr. Thomas M. Schünemann on the world’s hardest rallye. A look back in numbers:

 

1          This would be the position of the SAM 30D CC if there was an own classification for the cars that participate for the first time.

2          In the rankings within the HS RallyeTeam, the 13th place is the second best result amongst all Dakar participations. The only time the team from Hamburg has been better was in 2011 when they ranked #10 overall and reached the victory of the buggy class.

3              The number of times Matthias Kahle and Dr. Thomas M. Schünemann were the best German driver pairing of the Rallye Dakar. The previous successes took place in 2010 and in 2011.

4              The number of arrivals at the finish celebrated by Kahle/Schünemann during the five editions of the Rallye Dakar in South America.

7          The number of class victories achieved by the HS RallyeTeam in 16 desert rallyes, in most of which they participated in the buggy class. It was also seven times that the team participated in the Dakar.

9          This was the best result of the day for Kahle/Schünemann during the Dakar 2013. The Germans achieved this great performance two times, on the ninth and tenth stage.

10        The number of Kahle/Schünemann‘s arrivals among the Top 20 in the daily classification over 14 stages.

12        This position was the best result of the day of the new Maurer-MAN race truck.  Mathias Behringer, Hugo Kupper and Michael Karg finished the third stage on the twelfth place.

43        This outside temperature (in °Celsius) has been measured by a support vehicle of the HS RallyeTeam on the tenth stage.

96        The number of vehicles, amongst which 70 were cars and 26 were trucks, that the race truck overtook on its race to catch up on the second stage.

So far the impressive numbers. Interviews about the impressive experiences of the team will follow during the next days. Today it’s time to celebrate!
