SEVENTH PLACE FOR LUCIANO BENAVIDES ON RALLYE DU MAROC STAGE THREE
ROCKSTAR ENERGY HUSQVARNA FACTORY RACING RIDER LUCIANO BENEVIDES SAFELY INSIDE THE TOP 10 OVERALL AS RALLYE DU MAROC PASSES THE HALFWAY POINT
Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Luciano Benavides has delivered his best result of the Rallye du Maroc so far, claiming seventh on the ultra-technical stage three. Skyler Howes maintained a solid pace on the rough, broken tracks to finish in 16th. Suffering throughout Sunday’s stage two, due to a stomach illness, Luciano Benavides regrouped and came back fighting on day three of the rally. With the stage primarily made up of faster, stony tracks, rather that the near-endless dunes seen on previous days, Benavides rode to his strengths and didn’t take any risks on the unforgiving terrain. Taking care to minimize any navigational mistakes throughout, while continuing to become accustomed to his new FR 450 Rally, the young Argentinian produced a strong performance that ultimately secured him seventh place at the finish.
