AUTOSPORT's Dakar Rally blog

For the first major international motorsport event of 2013, we've sent Dakar rookie Sam Tremayne out to South America to see how he gets on chasing some of the toughest competitors in the world

Saturday 19 January

After three countries, 15 days and 8,574 kilometres, the 2013 Dakar Rally is over. And for a record 11th time, Stephane Peterhansel is a champion.

Only Sunday's podium ceremony in Santiago remains, but the compulsory duty still allows for plenty of time for the drivers and their crews, many of whom have been working at breaking point, to finally relax.
