spirits were not dampened and they have pushed tough to grasp top

stretch though eventually upheld and afterwards held and upheld Yazeed. For
a subsequent 150-200 kilometres we led a route, that was utterly good and
Alex was doing a good job. It’s good currently to see a dual MINI John
Cooper Works Rally in front. we wish that Yazeed wins a race.”
