Morocco: Elisabete Jacinto waiting for the rescu

The Bio-Ritmo® team is still waiting for help to lift the MAN TGS that fell yesterday in a dune area in the Erg Chegaga when the Portuguese were fulfilling the third stage of the Rallye Oilibya du Maroc. The Portuguese team was still trying to continue the race, but this situation depended on the help they would receive from the “broom wagon” sent by the organization on a rescue mission of the Portuguese.


However, the NPO truck failed to reach the place where Elisabete Jacinto and her teammates were and forced them to remain in the desert where they are at the moment. This way, and once that to continue in the race the Portuguese would have to arrive at the camp an hour before the first pilot left for today’s stage, the trio was forced to give up the rally.

Meanwhile the NPO helicopter has been with Elisabete Jacinto, José Marques and Marco Cochinho having left food and water. The assistance team, which is about 400 kilometers away from where the incident occurred, has already sent support and is working to get the truck safely off. Jorge Gil, Director of the team, said: "they are doing well and we hope that the truck can still be in its normal position today, and then Marco will have to do the necessary work to start the engine" told the manager.
