Rally dos Sertoes: Alcohol becomes the solution for Fabrício Bianchini.

The Sport category pilot Fabrício Bianchini almost got stuck during the Monday special in Sertões International Rally. Out of fuel, the pilot had to count on the help of a local to take his bike to the finish line.

“Someone told me last night that there would be a fuel station in the city, but there was not. There was a fuel station 80 Km ahead, and I ran out of fuel”, said the pilot.

His only alternative was trying to contact with the organization of the race to know how to proceed in this case, but a “miracle” was there to help. “A guy in a CG motorcycle showed up, said that he had fuel, and took me to the market. I got a full pet bottle, not enough to ride the 80 Km to go”.

But the pilot didn’t know about a secret stack: “they took me to a warehouse where they kept several alcohol bottles, and I fueled. I rode and it was ok”, laughed the pilot.

No origin – Even ignoring the origin or contents of that alcohol, the pilot got to the finish of the stage. He even commented about some flaws of the bike, but nothing special.

Unlike Pedro Bianchi. The Portuguese pilot had problems with the bike, and even said to Biachini that the Brazilian fuel wasn’t good. “I told him to convert his bike into alcohol, because you can find it in any little shop”, joked Fabrício.
