New experience, new car for Bulgaria
After Todor Hristov became the first Bulgarian to take part in the Dakar in 2011 on a quad, the eastern European nation entered the history book of the Dakar but this time in the car class. Not only was Orlin Alexiev on the start line of the Dakar in his BMW X1, he also reached the finish in a fine 61st position. For his second attempt, the Bulgarian will have a new co-driver, Plamen Nikolov and a new car, a Fiat Freemont 4X4 prototype prepared by A2 Concept. A tough task for the ambitious 46-year-old from Sofia.
