The second round of the Copa Chile Jeep 2008 was held at La Serena city. Cristobal Silva remained undefeated in the cross country while Antonio Leiva suffered a severe crash during the downhill and Mauricio Acuña took the win. The weekend's racing brought together cross country and downhill racers on some of the toughest tracks on the national circuit.

In the downhill qualifying race, Mauricio Acuña and Antonio Leiva were separated by only a few seconds. But then in the final, national champion Antonio Leiva, who also won round one of the Copa Chile Jeep Series, got off the track and crashed heavily, breaking his right femur. Acuña ended up in first place with a comfortable seven-second margin over second place.

"I won, but I have a bitter feeling after Antonio's crash," Acuña said while on the podium.

Veronica Miranda won the elite women's downhill event.

In the cross country, Cristóbal Silva maintained his more than year-long undefeated streak racing in Chile. "It was a tough race. I had a big crash on the last lap; however, I had a good advantage in getting first position." Javier Püschel and Gonzalo Aravena finished second and third behind Silva.

Francisca Campos won the elite women's race on home turf. Racing only two miles from her house, she said, "I spend a lot of time outside Chile, and I am grateful for the support of the spectators here at home." Daniela Bunzli and Elisa Garcia rounded out the top three.

In perhaps the closest race of the day, Catalina Corral, racing in the intermediate category, won by less than a minute over national champion, Laura Munizaga. "I'm happy to win at home and take a small revenge after the last national championship," Corral said after reaching the finish line.
