After featuring among the frontrunners in the opening two rounds of the World Rally Championship, the Abu Dhabi Total World Rally Team has confirmed it will be competing at Rally de Portugal (19-22 May) and Rally Poland (1-3 July).
After taking part in the Rallye Monte-Carlo and then Rally Sweden, the Abu Dhabi Total WRT took a break from the WRC during its American leg. Three cars have been entered at Rally de Portugal for Kris Meeke/Paul Nagle, Stéphane Lefebvre/Gabin Moreau and Khalid Al-Qassimi/Chris Patterson.
Last year, when the rally returned to the region of Porto, Kris Meeke finished fourth whilst Stéphane Lefebvre claimed a top-five spot in the WRC2 category.
Six weeks after Portugal, the team’s WRC programme will continue on the gravel stages of Rally Poland. This time, two cars will be entered for Stéphane Lefebvre/Gabin Moreau and Craig Breen/Scott Martin. Winner of the FIA Junior WRC round in 2014, Stéphane Lefebvre also competed here last year. Craig Breen has experience of the Polish round of the WRC too, since he competed here in 2013 as part of the European Rally Championship.
Kris Meeke/Paul Nagle: retirement
Stéphane Lefebvre/Gabin Moreau: 5th
Kris Meeke/Paul Nagle: 23rd (Rally2)
Craig Breen/Scott Martin: 8th
Khalid Al-Qassimi/Chris Patterson: 19th
