Alongside his co-driver, Paulo Fiuza, the five-time winner ends the stage in Petrolina in the fourth position in the category T1F and among the top ten in 

Five time winner of the Sertões Rally, Guiga Spinelli started to validate his 20th participation in the race this Saturday (12), when the race had the contest of its first special in its 31st edition, with the start and arrival in Petrolina (PE). Alongside navigator Paulo Fiuza, the driver of the Mitsubishi L200 Triton Sport Racing from the official team of Mitsubish Motors completed the 299 kilometers of the special held with start and arrival in Petrolina (PE) in the fourth position in the T1F category, and in the ninth overall place.

In a day of the longest test just at the opening of the Sertões 2023, with a total route of 674 kilometers, Spinelli highlighted that the adaptation to the car and to the work of Fiuza on a Saturday with a timed route was quite difficult. The driver of the Mitsubishi L200 number 310 also faced a tire hole during the special, which caused him to lose some time, but approved the performance at the end of the stage.

"It was a very difficult, very long special. We had some stunts on more high-speed sections and a tire hole. We're adapting to the rally, to the car, and I'm getting into Paulo. We will look for some change in the car for tomorrow, but finishing a hard special like this is a good result," said Guiga Spinelli, who has the sponsorships of FF Seguros, PneuStore, BTG Pactual Wealth Management, Atvos, W-Truffi Blindados, and Dacar Motorsports.

This Sunday (13), the drivers of the Sertões again make a stage in tie, with departure and arrival in Petrolina, passing through the city of Juremal, in Bahia. The special stage will have 174 kilometers,  while the full length of the day's leg will be 246 kilometers.
