M-class wins Tunisia rally 2005

M-Class takes the win today of this 2,784 km rally. 29 cars started in the production class. 12 cars finished after 8 days. M-Class places 1, 3, 5 and 8. It was a tough battle with Isabelle Patissier, Nissan Pathfinder, to the end. It's the first victory in the last year or so and counts towards the FIA Cross Country Worldcup.
