“A fantastic opportunity”
Ricardo Porem made his debut on the Dakar back in 2019 in a Can-Am Maverick and finished in a more than respectable 13th place. The following year the two times Portuguese national champion and four times winner of the Baja Portalegere moved up to the T1 category in a Borgward but failed to make it to the finish line -something he did achieve in the same car on the 2021 edition, arriving in 20th place. Having previously raced with X-Raid as early as 2014 and knowing how serious an outfit they are, the Portuguese racer jumped at the opportunity to drive their new Yamaha powered T3 on the 2023 Dakar. On the advice of a mutual friend, Ricardo has teamed up with Argentinian Ruta 40 regular Agusto Sanz. Although neither they nor their car have raced together, recently conducted tests in Morocco have left them both optimistic for next January.
“It’s a fantastic opportunity to race this X-Raid developed T3 and I’m vey motivated. I don’t know Agusto very well, we only trained together for just under a week in Morocco, but I think he is a very good choice. The car performed very well at these tests, X-Raid did a great job, as you would expect from such an experienced team, and I think we will be competitive.”
