They both have a common passion for off-road rallies in cars and on bikes, but for this Dakar the Brazilians will be onboard a CanAm Maverick SxS vehicle. Six years after their first appearance on the rally, that sadly ended well before the finish, Marcos Baumgart and Kleber Cincea are back in a far smaller car. For the last twenty years, they’ve gathered heaps of experience, conquering two Brazilian cross-country championships. While Marcos’s brother Cristian, in another SxS prepared by their X Rally Team, seems to have higher ambitions, Marcos and Kleber’s dream is to reach the finish.
M.B.: “Dakar is like a dream for me and for all who love motorsports! I really enjoy to visit these places and be in outstanding landscapes. I’ve been dreaming about the Dakar since I was 8 years old. We competed in the 2013 Dakar but we had to withdraw on the 5th day. For this edition, our goal is to finish, but just to Start for us, is like a victory. This has been a year in which we have been training hard, contesting races in the Brazilian rally and also in South Africa. The difference is that this time we will compete in a UTV instead of bigger cars. K.C.: “Dakar is the most challenging competition in motorsports. It’s a real challenge for me. We’d like to finish of course but we’d like to have some good performances on the sandy stages.”
