Al-Kuwari dominates WRC 2 at Rally Argentina
- 5th May 2013, 8:27am
M-Sport supported driver Abdulaziz Al-Kuwari dominated the WRC 2 category at Rally Argentina this weekend. Piloting their Seashore Qatar Rally Team Ford Fiesta RRC, the Qatari and co-driver Killian Duffy were in a class of their own – taking victory by an impressive 13 minutes.
The result marks Al-Kuwari’s second victory in the category following a similarly impressive performance at Rally Mexico earlier in the year. Indeed the Qatari’s performance is made all the more noteworthy by the fact that this was his first venture to the notoriously difficult event.
Despite his unfamiliarity with the Argentine stages, the Qatari drove a faultless rally. Rarely challenged by his rivals, Al-Kuwari complemented his intelligent approach with sensational pace which saw him secure 11 of a possible 14 stage victories.
As the only driver to take two victories from the category thus far, Al-Kuwari now heads the Championship standings. Contesting the Acropolis Rally later this month – an event the Fiesta driver is familiar with – Al-Kuwari will be hoping to extend his lead.
But next up for the Qatari and his Irish co-driver is Rally Jordan as they continue their FIA Middle East Rally Championship campaign with a similar Ford Fiesta RRC.
