Bigger ambitions for Brazilian SSV pair


Convinced by his two sons to go for the biggest adventure of his life, Leandro Torres achieved his first Dakar mission in style. Driving a Polaris buggy alongside his usual co-driver Lourival Roldan, the Brazilian managed to reach the finish in Rosario in 57th position, capturing third place of his class. An emotional moment for the man from Rio whose goal was just to finish. In love with the event, he returns in the same car with the same team mate after finishing fifth of the Dos Sertoes Rally on home soil. Torres will be pushing a bit harder to better his best performance and live the adventure at the fullest.
