|Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge: Nani Roma returns to the desert with X-raid.|
Joan 'Nani' Roma is preparing to travel to Abu Dhabi, where the second round of the FIA Cross Country World Cup will be held from April 6th to 11th with the "Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge". Like in the Dakar Rally, the Spaniard will again start with a X-Raid Mini All4 Racing.
"It seems like yesterday when we finished the Dakar and we are already thinking about racing again. A few weeks ago we did test with the car and with the engineers, preparing things for the Dakar 2014, which may seem far almost there already" said Nani Roma.
The second round of the World Cup (the first was the "Italian Baja"), is the first to be played in the desert. "Abu Dhabi is always difficult. It's a race with a lot of sand, with many dunes, but is an excellent preparation. Aside from running and try to win, it's a good opportunity to train at the highest dunes and catch possible way for the next Dakar" says Roma.
Nani Roma seek victory again, but knows that will not be easy: "It's a race with a lot of interesting entries like Jean-Louis Schlesser in his Buggy, the Overdrive Toyota and Mitsubishi Racing Lancer. We will start together with our partner Krystof Holowczyc, but it will be a difficult race."
