A fifth place finish in the ninth stage in Morocco lifted team crew members Denis Berezovsky and Ignat Falkov to the top place in the standings.
“Considering we missed two days, it was important to cover the whole race from start to finish and that was exactly what we did. This allowed Astana Motorsports to win the world championship,” said Berezovsky, who won the World Cup in 2008 along with his then teammate Artur Ardavichus in the same T2 category.
The Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (International Automobile Federation – FIA) Rally World Cup consisted of 10 stages in total. So far the races have taken place in Russia, the UAE, Qatar, Egypt, Italy, Spain, Hungary, Poland and Morocco. The last stage will be held in Portugal Oct. 22-24. The Astana team has won in Russia, Hungary and Poland so far this year.
