Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge: Roma "Don’t want to take unnecessary risks".




The Monster Energy X-raid Team enters the finish straight of the "Abu Dhabi Desert Challeng"e and made another vital step on the way to securing the overall win in the prestigious event.

In the penultimate stage, the pairings Nani Roma / Michel Périn and Krzysztof Holowczyc / Andreas Schulz took their Mini All4 Racing to second and third positions respectively. The stage was won by Frenchman Jean-Louis Schlesser. Stephan Schott and Filipe Palmeiro came 10th.

The Mini of Krysztof Holowczyc worked his way across the sand without encountering any problems – and overall leader Nani Roma in the yellow Mini followed close behind. Holowczyc was the second to start into Wednesday’s special stage, behind Schlesser and before Roma.

And although the Spaniard succeeded in closing in on his team-mate, he opted for staying behind. "I don’t want to take any unnecessary risks, now" said Roma. "Therefore, I followed Krzysztof and quasi let him show me the way." In the overall standings, Roma holds a 37-minute lead over Schlesser.

Holowczyc also opted for a conservative approach, in Wednesday’s special stage. “This rally isn’t an event to really push,” the Pole explained. “So many things can happen in the dunes. Nonetheless, the special stage was fun as the driving was really smooth.” In the overall standings, he worked his way up from seventh to sixth position.

Just as his two team-mates, Schott also experienced a virtually trouble-free day. By finishing 10th, he consolidated his ninth place in the overall standings. Consequently all the three X-raid Mini currently hold top-10 positions.
