Toyota Gazoo Racing South Africa’s Nasser Al Attiyah and navigator Mathieu Baumel finished in first place on Stage 10 of the 2019 Silk Way Rally.
That means a victory in all ten stages, as well as a historic victory for the Hilux. The Silk Way Rally brings the total number of victories to four – all behind the wheel of the same car, built at Toyota Gazoo Racing SA’s HQ in Barbeque Downs, near the Kyalami Race Circuit in South Africa.
First came the Dakar Rally, which the pair followed up with victory in the Qatar Cross-Country Rally, before adding the Rally Kazakhstan to their victory list.
“We are extremely proud of Nasser and Mathieu,” said an elated Glyn Hall, Team Principal of Toyota Gazoo Racing SA, after the race. “But we are equally proud of the car that we built for them. The Toyota Hilux has proved yet again just how tough it is, and the fact that they could win every stage of the rally shows that the car is not only tough, but very fast over rough terrain too.”
