QATAR’S ADEL ABDULLA TEAMS UP WITH FRENCHMAN JEAN-MICHEL POLATO AND AIMS FOR MAXIMUM T2 CHAMPIONSHIP POINTS IN ITALIAN BAJA
PORDENONE (ITALY): Qatar’s Adel Abdulla is in north-eastern Italy this weekend bidding to close the gap on the FIA T2 World Championship leader Ahmed Al-Shegawi at the Italian Baja, round six of the FIA World Cup for Cross-Country Rallies.
Adel said: “I have a new car and a new team and no Nasser Al-Kuwari this week. He is busy with his job with the World Cup. This race I will be with Jean-Michel. He was with me in 2016 for three races in Italy, Hungary and Poland. He has good experience.
“For sure, I am coming here to win this race. It is important for me. We will try to do our best and aim for the maximum points. I never try the car before. This race can be tricky in some places and fast. We cross some small rivers. It can be risky in some places, but it is a good race and a challenge for me.”
Adel Abdulla’s campaign to win back the FIA T2 Championship is running with valuable support from the Qatar Motor and Motorcycle Federation (QMMF), Ooredoo Qatar.
