Interview

Time to confirm for Krotov

Russia on the Dakar has had its number of successes but mainly in the truck race through the Kamaz team and its 15 crowns. In the cars however the nation has also had very decent results thanks to the likes of Leonid Novitskiy (first Russian stage winner in a car in 2012, 3rd in 2013) or Vladimir Vasilyev (5th in 2015). For the last two years, Denis Krotov has become one of the regular key figures of the event. Behind the steering wheel of a John Cooper Works Rally Mini alongside his Ukrainian team mate Dmytro Tsyro, he finished best rookie of the 2019 edition still in South America in 15th spot overall, and did almost just as well a year later on Saudi soil (17th). Despite a season without any racing, Krotov will be among the contenders for a final Top 10 spot but will this time have a different navigator at his side: the hugely experienced Konstantin Zhiltsov who last year finished fourth of the rally with Yazeed Al Rajhi, seven years after finishing on the podium with Leonid Novitskiy.
