Nasser Al-Attiyah Finishes 2nd At The Pharaons Rally Egypt, Three Mini All4 Racing Cars In The Top 5

Munich (DE). Nasser Al-Attiyah (QT) in his MINI ALL4 Racing has finished the prestigious Pharaons Rally Egypt in a strong 2nd position. The experienced driver of the Monster Energy X-raid team was just five minutes behind the overall winner Yazeed Al-Rahji (SA) at the fifth event of the FIA World Cup for Cross-Country Rallies when the cars crossed the finish line in Cairo on Saturday.

Al-Attiyah once again demonstrated the great performance and reliability of the MINI ALL4 Racing, winning three of the five stages in Egypt. This year’s event was again a huge challenge: the drivers had to tackle a special stage mileage of 1,800 kilometres, the route from El Gouna to Cairo was scenic with oasis and the Pyramids of Giza along the way but also full of difficult sections. High temperatures and a constantly changing terrain made it difficult for the drivers, to keep up the pace.

However, Al-Attiyah and his co-driver Mathieu Baumel (FR) were quick all the way through the event and had no major problems. “I’m extremely satisfied with this result”, Al-Attiyah said after crossing the finish line. “I really like the desert events, the landscape is always fascinating and it felt like driving at home here. I really love the Pharaons Rally, it’s a real classic. My co-driver Mathieu did a great job once again, he’s a great navigator and I can always rely on him. My MINI ALL4 Racing car was once again reliable and quick. It’s a real pleasure to drive this beautiful and highly competitive car.”

Erik van Loon (NL) in the second MINI ALL4 Racing finished in 3rd place overall, catching his teammate Vladimir Vasilyev (RU) on the final day of the rally event. However, Vasilyev maintained his lead in the World Cup with his fourth place, leading with 159 points in front of Al-Rahji (120) and Al-Attiyah (102) now. The next round of the FIA World Cup for Cross-Country Rallies, the Baja Aragón, will take place from 18 till 20 July.

Final result 2014 Pharaons Rally Egypt:
1. Al-Rajhi (SA) Toyota – 14h 07m 09s
