|OiLibya Rally of Tunisia: An extraordinary Stage Victory for Eric Vigouroux.|
From the second stage of the Rally Oilibya of Tunisia, the Trophy Truck wearing Toyo Tires´ colors has shown an outstanding performance with a stage victory. "The key of the day were the tires" explains Eric at the finish line. "On this stony and fast, you really needed to have confidence on your tires to attack without any apprehension. I am, so, very happy to dedicate this victory to our partner: Toyo Tires."
Monday´s special, of 288 km, was eaten by the Trophy Truck in 02:54:44, at an average speed of 100 km/h. "We were able to go even faster, because there were very fast portions, but speed is not the main feature of our car. Gladly all rough parts were compensated. On the mechanical side, we haven´t had any problem, so the performance is there," he continues.
Among the best times of the selective section, the Trophy Truck precedes Novitskiy´s BMW X3 CC and the Proto from Dessoude by 5:03. On the general classification, Eric and Alex are in the third position, 1:37 from Novitskiy and 15 seconds from Christian Lavieille. Not to say that the gap is very small and that the rest of the race will be thrilling.
