2013 History

tira_historial_2013

As in the previous season, Elisabete Jacinto takes part in competitions with the MAN TGS truck, and the navigator is José Marques, and the mechanic, Marco Cochinho.

The season began with the Africa Eco Race Rally, where there were rather competitive trucks. The team got third place among trucks and was seventh in the Car/Truck joint classification.

Once again, they entered Baja de Aragón, where they managed to be second in the truck category, and they finished the season with a brilliant first place among several prototype trucks in the Oilibya du Maroc Rally.

During the season there were training sessions in Morocco, bearing in mind the continuous technical improvement of the MAN TGS.

Elisabete also took part in the Rallye Aicha des Gazelles, driving an Amarock, once again in the VW France Team, and having the French woman Valérie Dot as navigator.

They led the competition from the first day but, when there were only thirty kilometers to the finishing line, a mechanical problem made them lose places, and they were eleventh.
