In addition to Aleš, the navigator´s position will be taken by an experienced desert navigator Khalid Alkendi of the United Arab Emirates.
Milan Holáň will take the position of the board copilot. In the past we talked with Khalid many times during the tests in Dubai about his possible engagement in our competition truck. We were the closest to this idea at the joint premiere in Dakar 2012.
However, only now have we concluded our mutual challenge to have a try together in the most challenging competition of the current marathon rally of the world. Khalid has 14 years of experience in the cross country rally.
In recent years, he led the famous Qatar Sheikh in the factory Peugeot in Dakar and also in the WRC series. Moreover, he was born in the desert. As he himself says, the truck is a great challenge for him, as Aleš Loprais said. Milan Holáň, on the other hand, is a well-known Tatra-born participant, who celebrated his competition premiere with Aleš when they won a bronze medal in Hungary in the 2008 Dakar Series. Consequently, they finished together once in the third place and once in the first place on the Silk Way Rally and won several stages in Dakar.
Aleš: Together with Milan, we managed to pull the Queen forward a bit. How much we “succeeded” will be unveiled in the following days full of adrenaline across Russia, Kazakhstan and China.
