Elisabete Jacinto withdraws from the Libya Rally

Elisabete Jacinto and the OLEOBAN® team ended this morning their participation in the Libya Rally 2016.

After the yesterday’s incident, where the MAN TGS turned in the dunes of the Erg Chegaga, the team wasn't sure that the engine state could guarantee an effective participation.

For this reason the Portuguese team has chosen to withdraw from the competition.

Yesterday the Portuguese remained more than 10 hours in the desert trying to solve the mechanical problem that resulted from the incident but only after they have received help from their assistance was when they managed to get the truck to walk and were able to reach the camp by 21PM of yesterday.

Elisabete Jacinto continua no Libya Rally

The Portuguese pilot Elisabete Jacinto and the OLEOBAN® team succeeded, after many hours of work, to solve the mechanical difficulty that arose after the competition truck turned in the dunes of the Erg Chegaga.

The trio is already at their way to the camp that is installed in Mhamid, Morocco.

Elisabete Jacinto was in front of the race when at the kilometre 55 of the fourth stage of the Libya Rally 2016, while going through a series of high dunes, the soft sand gave way and the truck ended up sliding and falling.

The MAN TGS from the OLEOBAN® team stayed up side down for about two hours and with the help of the Dutch Mammoet Rallysport - the same that hit the Portuguese in the first stage - they managed to put the truck back on its wheels.
