XADO Motorsport — a triumphant return
The National racing series in mini-rally “Liman Cup” took place on June 26 in Mykolaiv. Over 40 vehicles arrived to the starting line of the competition, Stanislav Besedin and Andrii Borovyi from XADO Motorsport team also came here after a long hiatus. The race took place on a dirt road of the 20 km long race circuit. Each crew had to drive six times around the circuit — three in each direction.
The task wasn’t easy but it became even more difficult due to dust, stones, and incredible steppe heat. According to the competition statistics, more than 30% of the participants usually do not reach the finish line. This time, once again, only 27 of 43 participating crews were able to finish the competition. Some drivers fell out of the race because of car accidents, some vehicles just refused to function due to unbelievably hot weather.
Our team was prepared for victory, and not without reason. Our drivers managed to not only reach the finish line but also win in the category of vehicles with the engine capacity of up to 1,600 cm3. The Liman Cup is now in Kharkiv. Our crew set a better time in the overall standing than that of much more ‘powerful’ cars. Besedin and Borovyi proved once again that their victory in Liman Cup 2014 was no accident.
At the moment our team is getting ready for the National Rally Cup “XADO DRC” which will take place in early September in Kharkiv.
