After a great weekend and for their first race together, Mikko and Andreas Schulz finish at the 3rd position of the overall classification of Baja Aragón behind Nasser Al Attiyah and their team mate Orlando Terranova. Leaders after the first day of the race, they knew that the challenge would be difficult today by starting first on the road.

“Of course, it’s a bit of disappointment to finish third of Baja Aragón” Mikko Said.

“The race started very well even if we had small issues with the dust. We were in very good position. It was a bit difficult to be first on the road today. Still, the feeling with the car was very good but the speed was just not enough against Nasser Al Attiyah and Orlando Terranova. At the end it’s a bit of disappointment but it’s a good result! We are third of the overall classification, the Mini John Cooper Works worked perfectly and the first race with Andy went pretty well! We can say that the preparation of Dakar 2018 has started! ”
