A clear overall result of the Transsyberia Rally shows that Porsche is the 2008 star of the race since it obtained the first six positions and nine vehicles of top ten were Porsche. Declared winners of the rally with two hours of advantage over the second place are Lavielle and Borsotto from Team France. “We are so happy to have won such an extremely tough rally. Right from the start the Transsyberia ran so well for us that we could ease back the pace over the last three days. I’m amazed what our Cayenne withstood over the last 7,000 kilometres” said Lavielle.
The massive battle was driven between Schwarz/Schulz couple and Soler/Peinado, both teams aiming for the second place. Pulling its best with the 385hp Cayenne Schwarz/Schulz team was still not enough to surpass the six minute advantage of the Spaniards. Soler/Peinado maintained their second position and the team of Germany 1 achieved the third place.
