Launched at the 2002 Essen Motorshow the Tarek comes equipped with a 218bhp Diesel engine. This engine, like all Diesel engines, doesn't impress when it comes to horsepower, but, with 390 Nm on the tap, it will easily outrun much more powerful petrol-engined adversaries.

Three teams will be entered. Leading the way is the very experienced and former winner Jutta Kleinschmidt.
