Having taken prize at competition phase, the crew holds the leadership in the general count of World Cup.

Total of 22 cars of the world top-rank drivers have taken part in Sealine Cross Country Rally. Rocky rally routes in Qatar are notable for difficulty in navigation. The rally raid is distinct by the greatest portion of special tracts within the total race distance: they take 90% of more than 1.9 thousand km of total mileage. This stage as well as the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge rally held in the early April has the double complexity factor, therefore all the points the team has got are doubled.

"The team keeps conquering the most complex routes of the World Cup for Cross Country Rallies and delights this sport's fans with road and navigation craft. Under extreme conditions, of particular importance is usage of high-quality lubricants capable of protecting the car engine against wear out. The G-Energy Racing specially designed synthetic oils meet the challenge perfectly", noted Alexander Trukhan, General Director of Gazpromneft-Lubricants, Ltd.
