X Rally Team to maximize attack
The Sertões crews arrived in the Jalapão region this Thursday after thrilling 300 kilometers of the marathon stage, the fifth round of the competition. Marcos Baumgart and Kleber Cincea were second fastest and regained the third spot in the overall classification, while reigning champions Cristian Baumgart and Beco Andreotti finished third, keeping the lead with a 3min41s advantage over Spinelli/Haddad.
“I think we could have done better today”, states Marcos. “It was a difficult stage, but we’ve lost a bit of time behind the UTVs, since there was no space to overtake. However, our pace was pretty good and the car arrived in one piece. The goal tomorrow is to go full attack”, he said.
Cristian and Beco had the same difficulty as Marcos and Kleber, but the pair is happy the NWM Ranger V8 showed his strenght once again. “It was ok, to be honest, but tomorrow we are going full throttle to regain advantage. This Sertões ir really tight and every detail counts”, Cristian told.
The sixth of eight stages takes place this Friday between São Félix do Tocantins and Bom Jesus, getting to the Piauí state. There will be 542 kilometers.
