XADO Motorsport — How We Spent the Summer
Hot summer days are time for vacation, but not for the racing team XADO Motorsport. In August, our drivers participated in several events of Ukrainian motor sport. On August 4–5, the crew took part in the 4th stage of FAU Rally Trophy for stock cars, “Slavutych Rally”, in Cherkasy.
According to tradition, the event took place in the territory of the local airport and included 10 special stages over 45 kilometers in total. From the first stage, XADO Motorsport showed a good start. All three crews were among the race leaders. In the course of the day, in a tough competition, our guys repeatedly demonstrated the best time in the overall standing. At the end of the race, the crew took the 3rd place in the 4wd category, the 2nd place in the 2wd category and the 3rd place in the team event.
On August 25–26, the fifth stage of the National Series of FAU Rally Trophy for stock cars took place near Derhachi in Kharkiv region. The race attracted a record number of crews. 54 crews from all over Ukraine came to compete for the trophies. The participants competed in 7 main categories, in the team event and 3 extra events. There were three special stages on the 72 km track, which the participants had to cover three times. The racers from XADO Motorsport made good time and took prizes, which allowed them to win in the team event.
The summer is over, but new races are awaiting us. On September 22–23, we are expecting to witness an exciting competition among racers during XADO DRC Rally on the Derhachi track.
