Team X-raid retains Leonid Novitskiy for 2013 Dakar Rally

Leonid Novitskiy X-raid Mini Dakar 2012

Team X-raid has bolstered its 2013 Dakar Rally line-up with double FIA Cross Country World Cup winner Leonid Novitskiy.

The 44-year-old Russian finished fourth on last year's event in one of the team's Mini All4 Racings and joins defending champion Stephane Peterhansel, Krzyzstof Holowczyc and Nani Roma in re-signing with the team.

Team manager Sven Quandt said: "Leonid convinces in particular by his consistent style of driving.

"With his approach, he avoids getting involved in any difficulties and secures good results. A fact that was demonstrated by his two FIA World Cup titles and his fourth place in this year's Dakar."

Next year's Dakar Rally begins in Lima, Peru on January 5 and concludes in Santiago de Chile 15 days later.
