|OiLibya Tunisia: Poker for Portugal´s E. Jacinto - 4th truck-victory in a row|
Winning on thursday the 5th streak run between Ras El Oued and Tozeur, Elisabete Jacinto, driving a MAN TGS, goes on excelling during the 30th edition of the Tunisian Rally.
The Portuguese driving the MAN TGS from Team Oleoban / MAN Portugal spent 03:47:52 hours running the 295 kilometres of the selective sector, 02:14:12 less than the runner-up truck; therefore she had her fourth victory in a row.
With the Belgian Charly Gotlib and the Portuguese Marco Cochinho as her teammates, Elisabete Jacinto suffered however from an injured thumb during part of the streak, since she hit it hard on the steering wheel.
"I am already used to this happening to me in such technical streaks. There is a lot to be done with the steering wheel, and the reactions are sometimes violent"Jacinto said.
"It hurts, but that may be overcome, and the fact that everything went on well with the race was an added incentive. Our MAN remains faultless. Charly’s navigation was excellent during a streak which was not in the least easy, and the outcome was very positive", stresses Elisabete Jacinto.
