Last year Aliaksei Vishneuski made his debut on the Dakar and was able to meet the expectation after his impressive 10th place on 2016 Silkway. The Belorussian finished with a superb result: 21st overall and 8th on SS5. This year he is back with one more year of experience with the target to improve his result.
“My best memory was finishing the race last year after two demanding weeks through extreme weather conditions and many changes / cancelations of the stages. As we were at the first Dakar participation, myself and my co-driver found the hidden WPC points the most difficult thing of the competition. I knew it was going to be a tough race because rally raids is the most difficult discipline in motorsport. Every race confirms it to me. Like every team we are preparing physically. As during the Dakar there are a lot of elevations, we have a course of mountain trainings. My target for the 2018 edition? We aim at finishing the rally and to get a Top-10 result. Dakar for me is a dream from my childhood. Since I was a young, I raced in motorsport: carting, drift and now – rally raids. Being at the start of the Dakar for the second year in a row is a dream come true. 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”.
