Interview

“We're expecting some big life experiences”

Petr and Tomas Fiala are one of three family crews preparing to tackle Dakar 2022 with the Vintage Racing team. Along with Dusan Randysek, Frantisek Randysek, Albert Pance and Stepan Pance, they will be competing in the Dakar Classic category. Petr is an experienced circuit racer and has long been passionate about classic cars, so it is fitting that his Dakar debut comes in a Land Rover Series II model that was built around 60 years ago. His son Tomas has been accompanying him to races and rallies since he was a boy, and also has experience in restoring classic vehicles. After Dakar 2021, Dusan convinced his old friend Petr to join him for a different kind of adventure at Dakar 2022. The all-Czech Vintage Racing outfit will now be trying to get all four of their Land Rovers to the finish line; Zdenek Ondracek and Rudolf Lhotsky are also on board, driving a later Series III model. This 44th edition of the Dakar will be a real baptism of fire for Petr and Tomas, but they can't wait to get started.

P.F.: “After Dusan's return from Dakar 2021, we started making plans for the following edition. But our dream only came true thanks to the Dakar Classic category, which has a much more affordable budget. On top of that, we are from the world of historic racing, where hundredths and averages are measured, so we have some idea of what's required in a regularity rally. We don't really know what awaits us, but we're looking forward to it. We're expecting some big life experiences."
