BMW Group brands MINI and Husqvarna participate at 2012 Rally of Egypt
Egypt plays host to the final competition of the world rally championship from the 1st to 6th October with the legendary Pharaons Rally. The Husqvarna Rally Team by Speedbrain lines up Paulo Goncalves and Joan Barreda on the Husqvarna TE449RR.
Awaiting are six gruelling stages; expect large doses of navigation and plenty of sand! Goncalves will be making his debut in the Pharaons Rally, currently third in the overall standing of the world championship just three points behind Villadoms. Paulo will have to attack in order to get a result that is especially important to the team in their first full season in a world rally .
Goncalvesâ€™ team-mate will be the speedy Spanish rider Joan Barreda looking to gain more experience and continue preparations for the next Dakar.
The Husqvarna Rally Team by Speedbrain also aims to keep hold of second place in the final overall standings in the world rally championship in the special industry category.
Team manager Wolfgang Fischer said, â€?The Pharaons Rally in Egypt has always been a crucial race in the preparations for the Dakar and is a first-time for our young team. Weâ€™ve got two aims: increase our bikeâ€™s competitiveness and get a place on the podium in our first full season in this category. Theyâ€™ll be six challenging stages but our riders are particularly motivated for this race and are in top physical shape.
