Seventh on the final stage, defending champion Toby Price put in a strong performance for the entire rally to ultimately finish in fourth overall. The Australian, making his first rally outing of 2019 since the Dakar Rally in January, soon found his rhythm on the fast, rocky pistes of Chile and is now looking forward to another strong result at the final round in Morocco.
‰ÛÏStage five has gone well, it was only about 180 kilometres, so not too long," Price said. "Sam caught me up and we led the entire stage from start to finish. It‰Ûªs always tough to lead out especially through the sand dunes but I think we did a good job. Overall, I‰Ûªm really happy, it‰Ûªs been a good rally and a good one to come back to. I know I still need to do a little work on my wrist ‰ÛÒ it‰Ûªs not quite right yet, but the plan is to be in slightly better shape for Morocco and then training in Spain before we gear up for the Dakar in Saudi Arabia next year.‰Û
