Second title for Nasser Al-Attiyah in a week


Seven days and two titles. That is the balance of Nasser Al-Attiyah. At the end of last week at the wheel of the Mini All4 Racing was crowned for the second time as champion of the World FIA Rally Cross-Country in Morocco. This Saturday in Jordan, the title has been at the controls of the Ford Fiesta RRC. Nasser Al-Attiyah has achieved the title of the Championship Rally of the Middle East (MERC) after clinching victory in the Rally of Jordan. The qatari took advantage of the problems of transmission of Yazeed Al-Rajhi and the rupture of a tire of Abdulaziz Al-Kuwari to just stay.

Nasser Al-Attiyah has once more proved its superiority in the MERC to get the title in the absence of the last two races in Oman and Dubai. The pilot qatari has won the regional title for the eleventh time, being the true dominator of the category since 2003, despite the titles of Yazeed Al-Rajhi (2004) and Misfer Al-Marri in 2010. From the reaches of the vehicles S2000 and RRC to the championship, no one has been able to cough up Al-Attiyah setting the title consecutively five times. This last crown has come from the hand of five wins in the six races contested.

Nasser Al-Attiyah is very close to close the perfect year. Got his second Dakar in the car category at the beginning of the year. However, a large part of the emotions of the qatari will have to focus on this month of October. The title of the World Rally Cross-Country and its eleventh victory in the MERC, next Sunday, you can add that to the second consecutive title of WRC2. To do so, qatar should get to finish the Rally RACC Catalunya ahead of Esapekka Lappi and increase your distance up to 26 points. Currently he is ahead in 9 units.
