Important test for Monster Energy Honda Team in Qatar

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

Monster Energy #honda Team will be back in action tomorrow (Tuesday) with the second round of the FIM Cross Country Rallies World Championship in Qatar.

Portuguese rider Paulo Gonçalves and Argentinean #kevinbenavides line up once more for the Monster Energy #honda Team in the Qatar Sealine, the second race whose points count towards the rally raid world championship.

Gonçalves wrapped up the #fimcrosscountryralliesworldchampionship opener earlier this month in #abudhabi with a closely-fought fourth overall place – a result that the rider should be able to improve upon with the type of form that he is currently displaying. Meanwhile, his South American team-mate continues to make a positive comeback after last year’s right hand injury and even managed to put in a convincing performance in #abudhabi, which included a stage win. Only a mechanic issue stopped Benavides from scooping a better overall result. The team will continue with the scheduled programme of testing for the #honda CRF450 RALLY with the race in the Qatar desert. The rally is well-known for its high demands, tough terrain and scorching temperatures.

The Losail Circuit will host the base-camp for the Qatar Sealine competitors. Likewise, the site will host the technical and administrative checks prior to the race-start. The daily stages will also start and finish from the circuit.

The race itself will begin with a Super Special of just over 5.6 kilometres. Before the rally is over riders will have had to tackle a total 2000 kilometres including 1373.82 against the clock.
