May be seen anywhere in the world
On the next 7th of May, by 12 o'clock, the truck with which Elisabete Jacinto and the Team Oleoban/MAN Portugal was face coming cross-country competitions will be shown live for the whole world through Internet. The public presentation of
the new MAN TGS was be dealt with in a way previously unheard of in Portugal at the level of motor sports, and it follows the latest trends in communication, which rely more and more on the potential allowed by the World Wide Web.
"It is with great pleasure that I am going to show our new truck on the 7th May. When, at the 5th streak of the Dakar, I saw our MAN M2000 in flames, I thought that my sports project had come to an end.
I had done everything to reach my best sports result ever, I had worked intensely in preparing the truck and I had done my utmost at the level of communication, but it was difficult to believe that it would be possible to overcome that moment of terrible misfortune", explains Elisabete Jacinto, and then she adds:
"The strength I received from those responsible for some of the most important truck teams taking part in the Dakar, as well as from my sponsors, opened a window of opportunity to which I clung. Four months later, here we are, with a rather solid project, which has many innovations, and this makes very happy and proud at the same time. Therefore, there are plenty of reasons for us to wish to share this joyful moment with those who have supported us, in Portugal and worldwide. The only means to achieve that meant we had to create the conditions to open the presentation to everybody, and this through the magic box which Internet is".
