Abu Dhabi, – Qatar’s Nasser Saleh Al-Attiyah stormed Tuesday to a fourth successive stage victory in the car category at the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge.

Al-Attiyah and French co-driver Matthieu Baumel continued to dominate the car stage win in cooler and windier conditions in their Overdrive Racing Toyota Hilux. The Qatari now heads Abu Dhabi Racing’s Sheikh Khalid Al-Qassimi by 39min 38sec with two days remaining.

Commenting on the results, Al Attiyah said that “The car is working very well, a perfect stage for us.” He added that there was “no advantage to coming here before. This is the desert. It is always changing.” He noted that it was “much cooler today in the car. We do not have air conditioning. We saw 51 degrees yesterday. Today was better and it also gives more performance from the engine. Two days to go, but we will drive at the same pace. It’s a good pace.” (QNA)
