|FIA World Cup: Jean-Louis Schlesser new leader in 2-wheel and overall cat.|
After the "Italian Baja", having secured a victory in the 2 wheel drive category and a well earned third place in the overall classification, the Sonangol-Schlesser team made it's way to the United Arab Emirates for the second round of the World Cup at the "Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge."
Against tough competition, of which at least ten cars were capable of winning, the Sonangol-Schlesser team put on a good performance in difficult conditions. Despite the extreme heat and challenging dune crossings, the Sonangol-Schlesser team once again took the victory in the 2 wheel drive category and were second overall.
At the end of this race, the Sonangol-Schlesser team are in the lead of the FIA Cross Country World Cup in both the 2 wheel drive category and in the overall classification.
“On the whole the race went well even though we had some problems in the first two days. To start with, we had a faulty compressor and on the second day we were down a cylinder. We then won the last three Stages” Jean-Louis Schlesser said. His next race will be the "Sealine Rally Qatar".
