The 31st edition of the Sertons Rally started well for Guiga Spinelli. The driver, who this year competes in the most important off-road race of the country alongside Paulo Fiuza with the Mitsubishi L200 Triton Sport Racing pickup from the official team of Mitsubish Motors, had a good performance in the Prologue and participated in the Super Prime in Petrolina (PE), this Friday (11).

In the Prologue, which had a course of 13 kilometers, Spinelli and Fiuza obtained the second best time in the category and closed in seventh overall among the competitors. Thus they advanced to the qualifying phase, named Super Prime, and the Mitsubishi 310 duo reached the quarterfinals. This phase was decisive in defining the order of departure for the first special.

"We finished the prologue in seventh place, which was good. We're still looking for the rhythm, the carpooling with Paulo, knowing the car was in a different condition from the test. It was a good result, and the first step was well taken. In Super Prime, we got fifth place, and we chose to be the fifth to start. We end the day satisfied," said Guiga Spinelli, who has the sponsorships of FF Seguros, PneuStore, BTG Pactual Wealth Management, Atvos, W-Truffi Blindados and the support of Dacar Motorsports.

"We chose to leave the fifth position. It's a good position, because we have four cars in front of us, and we're not going to open the road. On the one hand, it is good, because the road is already marked, and I believe that we will take advantage of that. But it is a long stage tomorrow, the first special that, as we see, will be complicated," said Paulo Fiuza, navigator from Guiga on the Sertões 2023.

Sertões 2023 will be opened for validity this Saturday (12), when the first special of this edition will be played. The competitors leave and arrive in Petrolina, on a total course of 674 kilometers, with 375 of them timed. On the route, the pilots will pass through Raso da Catarina (BA) before returning to the Pernambucan interior.
