SOUTH RACING CAN-AM’S ABDULLAH AL-ZUBAIR
FINISHES SECOND IN HIS CATEGORY AT BAJA POLAND
SZCZECIN (POLAND): Oman’s Abdullah Al-Zubair finished second overall in the Can-Am category at the Columna Medica Baja Poland in the town of Szczecin on Sunday afternoon.
Driving a South Racing-run Can-Am Maverick X3, the Omani and fellow countryman Faisal Al-Raisi got to grips with the bumpy terrain and difficult stage conditions made worse by the fact that they were running in the UTV National category behind some of the international runners.
The duo were tackling their second ever event over European terrain after finishing 16th overall and seventh in the Open category at Spain’s National Aragón Trophy in July. They also managed to win a stage outright on Sunday afternoon.
South Racing’s managing director Scott Abraham said: “This was a great result for Abdullah and Faisal in a full Dakar-specification Can-Am running against the National category cars. Yesterday the crew was delayed with a small technical issue in the morning but, otherwise, it was a really strong performance.
“They did a great job together. This was only their third rally. This was valuable European experience for them and the team in the development of the Maverick in preparation for Dakar.”
