Dubai:

French off-road rally ace Stephane Peterhansel will be chasing a third successive win, and the fifth of his career, in the penultimate round of the 2004 FIA World Cup for Cross-Country Rallies at the 14th UAE Desert Challenge on October 11-15. But prior to that official launch, competitors put the final touches to their preparations at the Jebel Ali Racecourse in Dubai for the Nakheel Prologue that will determine the starting order. A healthy crowd turned up to what was an appetizer for the main event, which starts officially from the Marina Mall in Abu Dhabi on Monday morning. (AP)
