Rallye dos Sertões
New team member Nasser Al-Attiyah leads interim standings in the Race Touareg

Volkswagen is setting the pace at the Rallye dos Sertõs in Brazil which the brand uses to prepare for the “Dakar”. On the demanding off-road tracks a Race Touareg has clinched all four of the stage wins that have been possible so far. The new team member Nasser Al-Attiyah (Q) and his German co-driver Timo Gottschalk were the winners of the special stage classifications twice. These results also give them the overall lead – of 1m 27.3s – ahead of the Spaniards Carlos Sainz/Lucas Cruz Senra who were successful two times as well. The local heroes Maurício Neves/Eduardo Bampi (BR/BR) who are competing in the “Dakar” winning car for the first time are ranking eighth overall after four of ten legs.
