Dakar 2012, Stage 6

Due to rain and snow continuing over the Andes Mountain Range, the Chilean authorities were forced to close the border at the Paso de San Francisco pass, situated at 4700 m.

Because of the extremely difficult conditions, the organisers have decided to organise a convoy for all vehicles tomorrow, in order to guarantee the security of the competitors and those following the rally. The itinerary will change and the Andes will be crossed using another route.
