Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge: Roma, Dabrowski and Van Loon win cars SS01




Dakar Rally 2014-winner and defending Abu Dhabi-champion Nani Roma (X-raid Mini All4 Racing) emphatically announced his intention to retain his drivers title in the "Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge" on Sunday.

"There were a lot of dunes, but I had no problems and navigation is going well," said Nani Roma after the stage. "I’m testing some new systems in the car and it's going very well so far."

Partnered by French co-driver Michel Perin, Roma powered his Mini into a lead of 11:29 minutes from Poland’s Marek Dabrowski and Jacek Czachor in a Toyota Hilux on the 290-km Yas Marina Circuit Special Stage 1 as the rally swept through the giant dunes of the Western Region of Al Garbia.

Finishing the day in third place in the cars category was Dutchman Erik Van Loon in a X-raid Mini, with the top six completed by Russian Vladimir Vasilyev in third Mini All4 Racing, and Brazil’s Reinaldo Varela followed by Poland’s Adam Malysz, both driving a Overdrive Toyota Hilux.

The UAE’s Yahya Alhelei made a solid start in his new Nissan Pick Up, completing the stage in eighth place, just ahead of Saudi Arabia’s Ahmed Al Shegawi in a Chevrolet. "Today was very difficult with some big jumps," Alhelei reported. "Also, it is a new car and I need more practice. I had problems with the shock absorbers, also no reverse gear, but being a Nissan it keeps going."

The rally bivouac, near the spectacular Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort, was a hive of activity later as mechanics got to work on cars and bikes to prepare them for Monday’s 269 km ADNOC Special Stage 2.
