Brazil WRT ace driver Daniel Oliveira escapes alive from Jordanís desert

16.04.2011: In his second outing, the Brazilian driver Daniel Oliveira completed his first experience driving through Jordan's demanding gravel stages in an acceptable 11ļ position among the manufactures for the fourth round of the World Rally Championship.

 

In his second outing, the Brazilian driver Daniel Oliveira completed his first experience driving through Jordan's demanding gravel stages in an acceptable 11º position among the manufactures for the fourth round of the World Rally Championship.


After the cancellation of the Thursday’s stages and his early retirement yesterday due to temperature issues, Oliveira got to the final day of action of the Jordan Rally with just a few kilometres made at the wheel of the MINI John Cooper Works S2000 on this rough roads.


However, Oliveira alongside his Portuguese navigator Carlos Magalhaes gave vivid demonstration of their enthusiasm for improving themselves and today did a really good job.


Over the early stages Daniel ran smoothly to settle in the car while on the second pass through them he improved considerably his pace to climb some positions in the standings. Only a spin on the SS18 prevented him from going further; nevertheless, the outcome was positive.


Now Daniel is expecting the next event that will mean another great challenge and step forward on his career since he will be leaving behind the MINI John Works S2000 to get in the WRC version which will officially debut on Rally d’Italia to be held in Sardinia on May 5 to 8.



Brazil WRT driver Daniel Oliveira:



What can I say. It was a really complicated event from the very beginning for everybody and particularly for us. We could barely run a bunch of kilometres because of the problem we had yesterday. This was my first time driving in these tough roads and it was really difficult; however, I’m glad since we were fast in normal situations.


Today over the second run we improved a lot our pace. We have overcome some difficult situations in our first two outings and we understand we helped Prodrive to develop the car. Now it’s time to move forward and start thinking about our debut with the WRC version in Italy which I’m really looking forward to.




News of the event



Jordan’s fans were lucky since they witnessed one of the tightest race finals ever after Citroen driver Sebastien Ogier snatched the lead from Ford driver Jari-Matti Latvala by just two tenth of second. The race was decided in the Power Stage which was won by the Frenchman.


In the Championship standings Sebastien Loeb (Citroen) claims the lead with 74 points followed by  Mikko Hirvonen (Ford) with 72. Ogier (Citroen) comes thirds with 69.
