The Rally Raid event was held in the Northern Cape province, based in the city of Springbok, and covered around 2000 kilometers over the last four days (from July 29 to August 1).
The stages forced the teams to cover about 600 kilometers a day that were "extremely challenging", mainly in terms of navigation and the management of the mechanics of the vehicles, says the team, in a statement sent to VerAngola.
After winning second place in the 'SXS' category at the Kalahari Rally, in September last year, the Angolan team thus keeps the flame burning for 2024, the year in which it intends to compete in the main event of the international off-road, the Dakar Rally.
"We intend to continue our preparation for the Dakar in 2024, taking advantage of races like this one, which are similar in every way, and that's why it was a good test!", shared João Lota, driver.
Navigator Nuno Santos stated that the team is evolving and defended that the main objective was the learning obtained, considering the secondary final classification, although important.
The Angola Rally Team competed in the 'SXS' category with a CAN AM Maverick X3 car, and had the assistance service of the South African team "MOTO-NETIX".
