|Sealine Rally Qatar: Duo Zapletal / Janacek to start after missing their car.|
They "managed the impossible": After the Czech Team "Offroadsport" couldn´t start at the "Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge" (their X-raid BMW and 5 other cars stucked at the Israelian/Jordan border), the team managed in the last moment to carry the BMW X3CC to Qatar.
"It was a week full paperwork, telephoning and emailing with Italy, but we finally did it," told Mila Janacek, navigator and coordinator of the racing car transport. "It was more complicated, because our driver Mirek Zapletal was the whole week in Poland on test drives with Adam Malysz and we have lost a one day more due to Easter. However we managed it, so we hope in big fight about world points in Qatar."
"Even to compete with the X-raid Team and the Overdrive Toyota will be very difficult. We also don´t have to forget the "Abu Dhabi" winner Jean-Louis Schlesser and also the powerful cars of the Russian G-Force team of course" Mila Janacek summed up the situation in Qatar.
"But we are looking forward and we will do our best to succeed! Thanks to all, who helped us with this logistical problem, because just to be at the start in Qatar is the half victory for us. Keep your fingers crossed!"
