SS1 win for Instaforex Loprais Tatar in Dakar 17
We have completed the first hard stage of the Dakar Rally. The speed trial measured only 39 km, but it was very narrow and broken. Furthermore, the weather was incredibly hot, the truck was like a sauna. There is much to lose and quite nothing to gain in such a stretch of the race. So our 31 seconds behind Martin Kolomý, who won the stage, is a good initial result. We will start again from the fourth position in the tomorrow´s stage.
The upcoming stage will take us to the territory of Argentina, RESISTENCIA – SAN MIGUEL DE TUCUMÁN. The section for trucks will be 812 km long, of which 284 km will be a speed trial. The first truck will depart at 18.10 CET. The weather will probably be our biggest enemy that takes on all its disguises and can bring about pretty unpredictable situations. Thank you for your support.
Greetings from Ales Loprais
