After a fine Dakar debut in 2017, rising star Kamil Wisniewski returns with the Sonik Team in 2018, looking to help mentor and team leader Rafal Sonik in his quest for a second Dakar title in the quads. The Polish pair are hoping to follow in the footsteps of another dynamic duo, the Patronelli brothers of Argentina, who conquered five Dakar crowns between 2010 and 2016 (three for Marcos, two for Alejandro). After all, on the long, punishing roads of the Dakar, two quads are often better than one! A two-time FIM Bajas World Champion, Kamil secured an impressive second place at this year's Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge and came in third behind Rafal at the Sardinia Rally. Renowned for his navigational skills and cool head, the 35-year-old has trained hard in order to make 2018 another landmark year for Poland at the world's most famous rally - although he is taking nothing for granted.
“Like last year, my goal is to finish the rally. I would like to be in the top ten again, but we all know that the Dakar is unpredictable. Ahead of the rally, I have spent 80 per cent of my time focusing on physical preparation, spending time in the gym and training in the high mountains, and 20 per cent of my time training on a quad. Rafal Sonik is my mentor and role model. He has taught me about perseverance and patience in the pursuit of a goal, and the importance of teamwork on such a difficult rally.”
