Air intake. Apparently there is some fairly deep water on that rally.

Must not be too deep... don't they normally run it up and over the roof of the car?

They also use that sometimes on particularly dusty stages. It reduces the likelihood that dirt will get into the intake tract (even with a filter, too much dirt can cause problems).

That's a Scooby prepped for the Safari rally. There's alot of deep mud crossings and the snorkel helps it breathe better.

As Marquis said it also keeps alot of dust from getting in the intake track.
