Interview

“Hard to watch from the sidelines”

He’s back. After a two-year absence, Andrey Karginov returns to the rally he conquered back in 2014 and that obviously gives the Kamaz team an extra asset. Oldest of the four drivers, soon to be 43-year-old Andrey Karginov showed in 2014 that he was a perfect soldier, remaining in the shadow before hitting hard when it mattered. His title defence was slightly tougher: a crash forced him to forget about victory and work for his team mates. The Russian still managed to finish on the third step of the podium which was a performance in itself. His story on the Dakar temporarily stopped after his 14th spot in 2016, but that didn’t prevent him from discovering other horizons and wionning the Africa Eco Race in 2017. This year, he prepared for the Dakar in style winning the Silk Way Rally in the brand new Kamaz 43509. Against fierce opposition he returns for the 7th time on the Dakar as a driver (he started as a mechanic in Ilgizar Mardeev’s Kamaz) with the same ambition to win and the same crew members: his navigator Andrey Mokeev and mechanic Igor Leonov. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Kamaz, the Russian team will have three former winners in its squad (Nikolaev, Mardeev and Karginov).

A.K.: “We are very happy that we could win the Silk Way Rally. I missed a year and was out of competitions. It was very hard to watch from the sidelines your friends, other teams and how they compete, I am a sportsman in my heart and wanted to get behind a wheel sooner. Our crew won the Dakar in 2014, the Africa Eco Race in 2017, but Silk Way Rally had always been “unconquerable” for us, now we managed it. We’re overwhelmed. The new truck performed very well, we are getting used to it, after all it is a new chassis, new engine. We have to get accustomed to the truck.” Vladimir Chagin, head of racing Kamaz: “You know how tough the rivalry is now in the truck category. The fight is decided in minutes, or seconds. The truck must be powerful, fast, lightweight and perfectly reliable. We have gone through a difficult process of developing, finding new solutions and preparing for the upcoming race and hope to show a result that will make our partners and fans happy. »
