Zimbabweans in the hunt at Dakar Rally

By ZBC Reporter
Zimbabwe’s top motor rally driver Conrad Rautenbach is still in contention at the on-going Dakar Rally in Saudi Arabia after finishing 10th in stage 7 of the tough race while rider Graeme Sharp is inching closer to realising his dream.
Conrad Rautenbach and his Portuguese co-driver Pedro Bianchi Prata are still holding their own after successfully completing stage 8 of the grueling Dakar Rally in Saudi Arabia this Monday.
As the race resumed on Sunday after a day of rest, Rautenbach and his Portuguese navigator Bianchi Prata finished 9th in a time of 5 hours 12 minutes 54 seconds, a place above their previous ranking in stage 7 where they finished 10th.
The two are still in contention with four stages left before the end of the competition.
However, for biker Graeme Sharp who is competing at the tough race for the first time, it’s still game on as he is moving closer towards achieving his goal.
Sharp ended stage 7 of the rally from Riyadh to Wadi Al Dawasir in 6 hours 46 minutes 4 seconds and with such determination, it seems the biker is in a good state of mind to finish the race on a motorbike.
