Racing: Qatar’s Al Attiyah Wins Moroccan Rally

Agadir, – Qatari racer Nasser Al Attiyah won Friday his third Rally Oilibya Of Morocco. The race is the penultimate round of the FIA World Cup for Cross Country Rallies. Al Attiyah had won the Moroccan rally before in 2004 and 2005.

Today’s win completes the perfect year for the Qatari racer, who won all the challenges he took part in this year. Some of the highlights of his year include winning the Sealine Cross Country Rally and the Italian Baja Rally.

He entered the fifth round today in the lead and managed to maintain the lead, 12.08 minutes ahead of second-placed Carlos Sainz. Al Attiyah actually finished the fifth stage in fifth place, but even that was not enough to prevent him from winning the rally.
