Dos Sertoes: Another stage win for Palmeirinha X-raid in Brasil.




Paulo Nobre made full use if his 1st place starting position to take the win on the 7th stage of the Rally dos Sertoes 2006 in Brasil. Leading from start to finish Nobre made all but one mistake when wrong slotted 10km into the stage. The mistake was quickly picked up by co-pilot Luiz Palu and the team were soon back on track.

"Today was another great day for us we were able to keep out front and control the race. The car worked beautifully and the more I drive the car the better it feels. Hopefully we can keep the momentum going on the final two stages until the finish in Porto Seguro on Friday," said Nobre.

Tomorrows 278km, 8th and penultimate stage will see teams leaving Burmado and heading to Candido Sales on what promises to be a tricky route. The stage starts on fast twisty farm roads where teams will have to look out of several erosion ruts and big holes before crossing several cattle gates that are no more than two pieces of timber across a big whole. A mistake here will cost any team dearly and almost certainly put the out of the race.
