XADO Motorsport: the champions again!
The final sixth stage of the Ukrainian Rally Championship took place in Ivano-Frankovsk on October 18-19, 2013. XADO Motorsport team arrived to Zakarpatie having lost six points against the leader. All the three cars went off. There were certain chances of success but they grew more and more feeble and precarious when Sergei Kostiukov and Yevgenii Korshikov withdrew from the race. A suspension of their car was damaged. Not a ghost of a chance for the championship in the team event was left when Stas Besedin was out of the game in “Fiesta”. At one of the turns the pilot lost control of the car on the slippery gravel road and the car dashed out into a tree. As a result, the cooling system of the vehicle was damaged. Moreover, “Trembita” rally was expected to decide the fate of the championship within the category, and here the fate was assisted by good fortune. The main Stas’s competitor dropped out of the race even before him, that is why the team got enough scores to become the best in their category.
Therefore, only Nikolai Chmykh and Aleksandr Vilchinskii from the third category remained in action. According to the pilot, the race was not a success for them either, but they still managed to finish. They took the fifth place, the worst result in the season, which yet makes up these very 40 decisive points allowing XADO Motorsport to win the championship and become a leader.
Ukrainian Rally Championship is over. The last stage showed that our team had prospects of development and potential for professional growth.
XADO Chemical Group congratulates the members of the team wishing them new achievements and wins in rally championships in future, moreover that XADO Motorsport has all the chances to become the best team in the final stage of Crimea Cup taking place from November 1 till November 3, 2013 in Alushta.
