Cristina Gutiérrez on Friday became the second woman to win the Dakar Rally, taking the lead on the final stage after Mitch Guthrie suffered a gearbox failure. Gutiérrez sat second to Guthrie from Stage 6 to Stage 11 of the 12-stage race, before Guthrie’s mechanical on the last stage promoted her to the win. Both Gutiérrez and Guthrie this year drove the Taurus T3 Max, after Gutiérrez switched from Can-Am. Guthrie ended up second, just over 36 minutes behind Gutiérrez. Can-Am Factory Racing’s Rokas Baciuška rounded out the podium in third, nearly an hour behind Gutiérrez.
