2004 X- Raid BMW
You are at: My Life in Rallying ---> BMW X-Raid
During the 2004 season ,when i was helping RGRS and Volkswagen, i still had good contact with my friend Erwin Weber.
Erwin was at that time working togeather with the team X-Raid and the BMW X5 Rally Raid.
He was needing somebody to help him in the 2005 Baja Portugal,where 2 cars were driving,and i went there.
For me this was a new experience i had never done.
Everything was made like a Tank and the cars were very impressive.
The service time is not like in a rally ( 20 or 30 minutes ) it is sometimes 3 Hours !!!! Something i had to get used to.
You can be a lot more relaxed when changing parts and checking the car.
One driver in Portugal was an old friend of me ( Kalifa al Mutawei from Dubai who drove for Toyota ivictory team n the 1995 Middle East Championship), so we had a good time in Portugal.
I enjoyed this type of Rallying and who knows where the future is ??
