NASSER AL-ATTIYAH?? LEADS 40th MANATEQ QATAR??INTERNATIONAL RALLY AFTER AL-WAKRAH OPENER

· Ceremonial start gets underway at Souk Al-Wakrah for first time
· Qatar’s.

2019 Manateq Qatar International Rally 
FIA Middle East Rally Championship, round 1

AL-WAKRAH (Qatar): Nasser Saleh Al-Attiyah set the fastest time through the opening 2.72km super special stage of the Manateq Qatar International Rally at Al-Wakhra, south of Doha, late on Thursday evening.

A time of 4min 01.1sec enabled the Qatari to hold a lead of 23.8 seconds in his new Volkswagen Polo GTI R5 over second-placed Abdulaziz Al-Kuwari at the overnight halt. Khalid Al-Suwaidi was third.

The Qatar Motor and Motorcycle Federation (QMMF) attracted 16 FIA cars, six national entrants and competitors from 13 nations for the opening round of the FIA Middle East Rally Championship (MERC).

This is the 40th edition of the event and the 35th to be a counting round of the regional series since its inception in 1984. Qatar has been an ever present in the MERC with the exception of 2004 when it ran as a candidate event and this is the 24th occasion that the rally has been the first round of the championship. It is the 211th rally in MERC history.

The opening super special was filmed live by Al-Rayyan television and featured two different sections of a purpose-built, floodlit track with drivers competing in pairs and taking their turns on each section of the special.

QMMF President Abdulrahman Al-Mannai and Manateq’s CEO Fahad Rashed Al-Kaabi flagged the cars off the start podium at Souk Al-Wakrah.

Several drivers carried out pre-event testing on Wednesday afternoon. Al-Attiyah took the opportunity to shake down his new Volkswagen Polo GTI R5.

The 13-time event winner said: “It’s fantastic. A great feeling for the first time in the Polo. I get support from VW Motorsport. Qatar is a major investor in the company. We see what we can do. In this moment, we only have the support for the MERC. I would also like to do some European Championship events. I will do my best to win this race. The new stages in the north are a little bit tricky. They are far away from service and, tomorrow, two stages and repeat and without remote service. So it will not be easy.”

Sheikh Hamed bin Eid Al-Thani won the regional title in 1993 and had made a surprise return to special stage rallying after a long stint in cross-country events.

The Qatari said: “This is the first time that I drive the R5. The last time I drove a car like this was a Group A (Toyota Celica) in ’94 or ‘95. I made test yesterday, around 10km, but the car was easy to drive. I don’t have the experience with saloon cars for a long time, but I hope to do well and go to the finish without a problem.”

Adel is only the second individual in MERC history to finish inside the top two as a driver and co-driver – he finished second in the Qatar Rally as a navigator to the late Misfer Al-Marri in 2006. Qatar’s Mubarak Al-Hajri won the event in 1993 as a co-driver with Nasser Khalifa Al-Attiyah and in 1995 with Khalifa Al-Mutaiwei and finished second overall as a driver in the 2011 Qatar Rally with Emirati Arif Yousef Mohammed.

Teams will tackle just four special stages on Friday in a short but potentially tricky opening day. There will be no opportunity to return to Lusail Sports Centre for a midday service break in a day that starts with the first of two runs through the 19.86km of Al-Ruwais in the far north of Qatar at 10.40hrs.

The first pass through Al-Ghariyah follows at 11.15hrs and the two specials are repeated at 12.10hrs and 12.45hrs after a chance for remote refuelling between the two loops.

Engines on at the 7th Rally di Roma Capitale

The event organized by Motorsport Italia is getting to its heart. The Qualifying Stage and the Shakedown will take place tomorrow as the opening from Castel Sant’Angelo in Rome.

Rome, July 18th, 2019. Engines are switching on at the 8th Rally di Roma Capitale. Preliminary operations being concluded today, tomorrow, Friday, July 19th will open with the Qualifying Stage in Fumone and the shakedown that will be run also by the contenders of the Italian Rally Championship on a 4.02 km road strip in Ciociaria. The Selection of Start Position and pre-rally Press Conference at the Sala della Protomoteca – Piazza del Campidoglio 1 Roma – entrance from the Vignola staircase – will be at 16.

The opening show of the Rally di Roma Capitale will follow at 19 with the start from Castel Sant’Angelo, the prestigious and exclusive setting in the Rome city centre that will house the start to the 5th Round of the European Rally Championship and Italian Rally Championship.

The big names of the European and Italian Championships will then head to Fiuggi for the night regrouping.

The first rally day will be Saturday, July 20th. It will include six spectacular tests in the Province of Frosinone with a liason of 481,13 km featuring two loops of the three stages: “Pico-Greci” (19,46 km) [SS1 at 9:33 | SS4 at 15:52] – this stage was present in the previous editions that for the first time will be faced in the opposite direction. It is quite a challenging test on a narrow road. “Roccasecca-Colle San Magno” (13,93 km) [SS2 at 10:28 | SS5 at 16:47] – this stage is a driven one and its fast sections climb up to 900 meters on the sea level. “Santopadre-Arpino” (21,17 km) [SS3 at 11:18 | SS6 at 17:37] – this is the longest stage of the rally, mostly run last year with an additional 4km section. This is quite a driven test with several corners one after the other. Sunday, July 21st will open with a more consistent program featuring two loops on four different tests in the Frosinone territory, while the double “Arena ACI Roma” tests will close the event in the evening.

The Poles Lukasz Habaj and Daniel Dymurski get to Italy as European Championship leaders on their Skoda Fabia R5. They come from the victory at the Azores and two podiums in Spain and Poland on June 30th. Behind them, the crew of the Citroen C3 R5 made by the Russians Alexey Lukyanuk and Alexey Arnautov that won the Rally Poland. The third place of the European classification is currently held by the young Britons Chris Ingram and Ross Whittock, also on Skoda Fabia. They lead the ERC 1 Junior classification too. The Italian Andrea Nucita has been shining so far in the European series on the Fiat Abarth 124, who is fighting for the ERC2 and the Abarth single-make title.
