|Pharaons Rally: French Eric Vigouroux to compete for first time in Egypt.|
After his successful participation in two races of the FIA World Cup and the victory in the 24 Hours of Morocco, Eric Vigouroux arrives to Pharaons Rally very motivated, full of possibilities to reach the Two Wheel Drive Trophy of the World Cup. As this will be his first time in Egypt, the French driver can´t wait to see the outcome of the race.
2010 has gone full gas for Eric Vigouroux and his co-driver Alex Winocq. After participating in three races since de beginning of the season, the crew is on top of the Two Wheel Drive Trophy classification of the FIA Cross Country Rally World Cup, honoring their great shape. They in an excellent position to face the last leg of the World Cup, but they must control the attacks of the "fox of the desert", Jean-Louis Schlesser, who will not give up his chance.
"After our overall victory in the 24H of Morocco, we wanted to go further and we went directly to the Rally Estoril-Marrakech, where we finished on the podium right behind the BMW factory team" tells the driver. "Once in the plane to flight back to the United States, the idea to go for the World Champion Title in Two Wheel Drives for drivers and manufacturers came to my head naturally",
Pharaons Rally, as the last leg of the 2010 season, will be a crucial race. "I like the context on which we are taking it. I can´t wait to be there because it will be our first experience in Pharaons Rally and if we finish in a good position, we have all possibilities to get the title that would complete our records and it would be such a great reward for the team and our loyal partners," shares the driver.
But to make this goal come true won´t be so simple. Jean Louis Schlesser will also be there. "It will be a great battle because Jean-Louis is only five points behind me on the classification, so everything can happen. We decided to give our best until the end, so we won´t have anything to regret, no matter what happens. The duel is on, and Mr. Schlesser won´t give up either" Says Eric.
