Honda is once again the FIM Manufacturers World Champion! This is the direct consequence of the contribution from all Monster Energy Honda Team riders after another Rallye du Maroc. Now it’s time to say goodbye and start thinking about the new season, especially its main race – the Dakar Rally.
Today it was time to race the last stage from the six days program, with a short but very intense road-book around the dunes of Merzouga, in the very south of Morocco. Pablo Quintanilla – who was the winner here two years ago – has dominated the stage by 01 minute and 24 seconds. With this performance, Quintanilla secured a final podium position in third place. Adrien Van Beveren was 5th with a 03 minutes and 58 seconds for the leader – closing his participation in the Rallye du Maroc in 7th place. José Ignacio Cornejo was today 7th, meaning a 6th place in the overall standings.
After the Dakar, the UAE Desert Challenge, the Sonora Rally, the Ruta 40 Rally and the Rallye du Maroc the 2023 season of the World Rally-Raid Championship is over.
