InstaForex Loprais Team finished first in the category of trucks at long-lasting Rally Breslau 2014 in Poland.
The international Rally Breslau is orchestrated on the principle that both professional racers and amateurs are free to take part. This year, a large number of vehicles in all categories applied for the challenge. Traditionally, the competition among trucks was extremely fierce. However, the tough competition unfolded for the second and lower ranks as the lead was gripped by InstaForex Loprais team right from the starting line. The rally team was able to keep its leadership despite all ups and downs as well as troubles because of the unfamiliar route and technical failures. The team was pleased with the wide margin between the first and second ranks. It enabled InstaForex Loprais team to pass the final 100-km special section smoothly.
The Tatra truck of InstaForex Loprais team covered over 1,000 km along Polish tracks and rough terrain. During Rally Breslau 2014, the team was able to trial the new design of the Tatra and, first and foremost, the new engine. Citing captain Ales Loprais, the team considered Rally Breslau as an excellent opportunity to test the updated configuration and as a rehearsal before the Dakar Rally 2015, event No 1 in the rally world. Ales noted that victory brings joy in any case as it proves not only the fine grade of the new truck, but also “the top gear” of the team. In addition, Ales Loprais mentioned that the team could not avoid minor breakdowns. However, the racers treated each failure as an excuse to update a certain unit of the vehicle and rule out a similar breakdown in the future. “It’s better to fix something here than in Dakar,” the team’s captain made a comment halfway through Rally Breslau.
