X Rally Team to run Overdrive Toyota Hilux in the Sertões

X Rally Team adiciona Toyota a seu rol de supermáquinas

Three-time Sertões winner, the X Rally Team will run two last-generation Toyota Hilux IMA V8 built by Overdrive in the Sertões 2020, from October 30 to November 8. The competition will leave São Paulo towards Barreirinhas, in Maranhão, to a 5 thousand-kilometer rally. After winning three times in a row with Cristian Baumgart and Beco Andreotti in 2016-17-18 with the NWM Ford Ranger, besides a fourth title as the team that built the X Rally Ranger in 2019, the brothers Cristian and Marcos Baumgart will get to grips with the new machinery in Portugal in the end of September.

“The pandemics forced everybody to postpone their plans, and with us it was not any different. To race with the new generation NWM-Ranger V6 was our initial plan, however, NWM warned us that with all the Covid-19 situation the cars would not be ready in time for the Sertões”, stated Beco Andreotti. “They are fantastic partners, true friends, and our partnership continues as we keep building the X Rally Rangers in Brazil for our customers”.

The new Toyota Hilux were build in Belgium by Overdrive and are the official Toyota cars in the FIA Cross Country World Championship – the cars that took Nasser Al-Attiyah to be runner-up in this year’s Dakar and the one that provided two-time Formula One champion Fernando Alonso his first experience in the Dakar.

“The Toyota is also a fantastic car and to have the opportunity to race the latest version of it proves how much Overdrive have confidence in our work. It’s a car that has been tested in the toughest conditions and it is a safer option than to run a car in its early stages of development”, said Andreotti.

The Baumgart brothers will get to grips with the cars in September during the Baja TT Capital dos Vinhos, in Portugal, from 25 to 27.
