Interview

“My target is to finish the rally in Top10”

In the MAZ team, there’s the boss, team manager and star driver, Siarhei Viazovich, there’s old-timer who still had what it takes to perform well and there’s the rising star, Aliaksei Vishneuski. Like their models Kamaz, Maz have slowly built a team to aim at the top positions on the Dakar and like their Russian rivals, heritage is essential. Now 27 years old, Vishneuski appeared on the event three years ago, clinching a promising 21st position. Alongside his team mates Maksim Novikau and Aliaksei Neviarovich, he carried on impressing on the first stages of the 40th edition (3rd after day 3), eventually finishing in 14th place. The driver from Minsk continued improving last year, capturing 11th spot. After finshing 8th of the last Silk Way Rally, the learning curve will get even tougher now the Dakar moves to Saudi Arabia: a fine opportunity to shine and reach that long awaited Top 10 spot.

“Dakar for me is a dream from my childhood. Since I was a young, I raced in motorsport: carting, drift and now rally raids. I watched Dakar on TV and now I have the chance to participate in it and to stand for my team and for my country”.
