Among the three cars of the German team, the pair Nasser Al-Attiyah/ Timo Gottschalk made the best time of the first day among the cars. Following them, only 4 minutes behind, Brazilians Mauricio Neves/ Eduardo Bampi got the second place. The Spanish pair Carlos Sainz/ Lucas Cruz got the third place, scoring 2h35min52s50. Jean Azevedo/ Youssef Haddad came fourth.

To Nasser, debuting in Sertões, the first day was already challenging. “The first day was not easy at all. We faced dangerous sections. We started on 10th and overtook six cars. But I am very happy to drive a Touareg at Sertões”, said the Qatari pilot.

Bazooka Touareg – For the Brazilians in Volkswagen team, the first special served for tuning and adaption with the equipments. “The debut was very good, and the special was a pleasant ride. I still get confused with the equipments, because they are different from those I am used to deal with. But later I’ll talk to the guys and see what I can do to adapt in the next days”, explained navigator Eduardo Bampi, Mauricio Neves’ partner.

The pair Jean Azevedo and Youssef Haddad started in first place and made navigation mistakes. But they managed to make a good recovery race and got the 4th place, right behind the German cars. “We were well when we got back after the mistakes, and we are happy with our performance. Some mistakes are acceptable, but we will work to get well and race the next nine days in a more relaxed mood”, told the pilot.

Check out the first day’s result in the cars category of the Sertões International Rally:
1) Nasser Al-Attiyah/ Timo Gottschalk - 2h30min28
2) Maurício Neves/ Eduardo Bampi – 2h34min03
3) Carlos Sainz/ Lucas Senra – 2h35min52
4) Jean Azevedo/ Youssef Haddad – 2h48min42 "
