Interview

“The goal is to compete for the top places”

Kamil Wisniewski will once again be among the leading contenders in the quads this year. In the absence of his mentor, 2015 winner Rafal Sonik, the 38-year-old will be flying the flag for Poland on his Yamaha Raptor 700, looking to improve on his best-ever finish of 5th a year ago. Since making his debut in 2017, Kamil has never failed to reach the finish line. He has only come in outside the top 10 once, in 2018, after a mistake on the opening stage cost him significant time in penalties. That impressive consistency earned the Wyszkow native a dream move to the Orlen factory team ahead of Dakar 2020, which means he is now rubbing shoulders with some of Poland's biggest offroad talents: Jakub Przygonski, Adam Tomiczek and Maciej Giemza. Czech star Martin Prokop has also come on board this year, in cooperation with Benzina, and yet Kamil could well end up posting the best result of any of the Orlen competitors at Dakar 2021. Having already broken into the top 10 and then the top 5, the two-time FIM Bajas World Cup winner will surely be targeting the podium on his upgraded machine, going head-to-head with the likes of 2019 champion Nicolas Cavigliasso, Alexandre Giroud and Tomas Kubiena. Kamil has been focused on getting fit in the run-up to the Dakar, and posted a solid 3rd place at the recent Andalucia Rally.

"With the support of PKN Orlen, I was able to modify my quad for Dakar 2021. The new machine is stronger than its predecessor. I don't want to disappoint anyone, so the goal is to compete for the top places from the very beginning. There will be a lot going on, for sure!"
