Excelencias del Motor - - Deportes / Sports -

THE 40TH EDI­TION OF RALLY DA­KAR WAS RAN BACK IN JANUARY AND IT HAS TAKEN PLA­CE IN DIFFERENT LOCATIONS SIN­CE THE VERY BE­GIN­NING OF THE EVENT, IN 1979. THE SUSPENSION OF THE RA­CE, IN 2008, DUE TO SECURITY IS­SUES, MO­DI­FIED THE SCENARIO A YEAR AF­TER EU­RO­PE-AFRI­CA TO SOUTH AMERICA, WITH TEN EDI­TIONS AND ROUTES THAT WE­RE AS HARD OR EVEN MO­RE DIFFICULT THAN THO­SE LIVED AT THE

AFRICAN DE­SERT. Just as our head­li­ne reads, the stron­ger team always wins, and it not only re­fers to the vehi­cle’s fea­tu­res,

which are very im­por­tant, but al­so to the team mem­bers (dri­ver and co-dri­ver) who do their best in terms of skills, con­cen­tra­tion and mind strength to ma­ke it through each sta­ge. That’s the reason why the list of win­ners is ma­de up of: Matt­hias Walk­ner, Aus­tria (KTM) in bi­kes; Ig­na­cio Ca­sa­le, Chi­le (Ya­maha) in quads; Car­los Sainz, Spain (Peu­geot) in cars and Eduard Ni­ko­laev, Rus­sia (Ka­maz) in trucks. All of the­se dri­vers hold several crowns, ex­cept for the Aus­trian. As for the brands, they have all won an

array of pri­zes in this epic ra­ce.
