Dakar 2015: going after new victory on new truck

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014
The 2015 Dakar rally is a real strength test both for drivers and vehicles. It will run across Argentina, Chile, and Bolivia. The rally kicks off January 4, 2015 in Buenos Aires with its first stage being a warm-up for all participants, including InstaForex Loprais Team.
The crews will face first serious tests during the 2nd stage, where they will have to go through the heart of Argentina – breathtaking special stages through Villa Carlos Paz, San Juan, and Chilecito. The team of Ales Loprais will fight for the title of the best racing team on a new Dutch MAN truck that was prepared specifically for this rally.
The teams will move through clay soils, mountain peaks, and deep canyons on their way to the first bivouac. That will be the point where the crews to cross the border with Chile will be decided. The MAN truck of Loprais’ team is equipped with a powerful Gyrtech engine by Buggyra Dakar Forces, which is strong enough to cope with both a mountain pass of Paso San Francisco and sands of the Atacama.
The first half of the Dakar will end in Iquique, where hundreds of fans will wait for the racers. However, it is clear that not all crews will reach the Dakar’s golden middle. The trucks will have to overcome a twice longer sandy area and somebody is sure to get stuck in dunes. The team’s leader Ales Loprais has all chances to show his skills and reach the finish line in Buenos Aires. The final special stage is known for its fast tracks so Ales will need to be extremely careful.
There’s little time left before the world’s main rallying event and the caravan of InstaForex Loprais Team led by the brand-new MAN is halfway to Argentina. There’s a 9,295-kilometer two-week marathon along the South America’s harshest terrain. Stay with us and keep abreast of the latest news from the 2015 Dakar.

InstaForex Loprais team wins Rally Breslau

Thursday, July 24th, 2014

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.

So, our heartfelt congratulations to InstaForex Loprais team on winning Rally Breslau 2014! Let’s wish Ales and his team great performance at European rallies this summer. Make the most of it to get ready for Dakar!

You always win with InstaForex!
