“Live a new experience and discover new countries and friends!”
While it will only be his second Dakar, Vladimir Vasilyev is already a well-established driver in the world of off-road rallies. On the 2014 edition he could even go one big step higher. Best rookie of the car race last year and 16th overall when he was driving his G-Force prototype, the Russian will be part of the X-Raid team this time and will be behind the steering wheel of a Mini ALL4 Racing, in other words: the best car on the market. The 39-year-old already had the opportunity to experience his Dakar car last year on the Baja Portalegre and on the last Morocco Rally that he finished in a fine 3rd position. 2013 Russian off-road champion and second of the Silk Way Rally in his usual G-Force with his usual Ukrainian co-driver Vitaly Yevtyekhov, Vasilyev could be one of the good surprises of the Dakar to come.
