Al-Attiyah targets Golden Stage Rally revenge
"Last year we just lose the first position and finish second"
Nasser Al-Attiyah will start the Cyprus Golden Stage Rally on 6 November determined to claim the victory that eluded him when the event took place for the first time last season.
Al-Attiyah finished second to Andreas Mikkelsen on the live-for-television spectacular but wants to go one better when he tackles the mixed-surface event in his M-Sport Ford Fiesta S2000.
“Last year we just lose the first position and finish second,” said Al-Attiyah. “It’s a great idea, one stage used twice. Everybody will be there and it will be an interesting rally.”
Al-Attiyah, from Qatar, has a long record of success competing in Cyprus and finished first when the country hosted its first Intercontinental Rally Challenge event in 2010.
