After the press ceremony team finished the preparation of 3 racing and 3 assistance trucks heading to the 10 days test session to Africa. In the extreme conditions of Sahara desert all the crew will test the new changes on the trucks including physical training and navigation.
“I am really looking forward to the new concept and datas from the test session of the new Torpedo. I have many experiences with previous bonnet trucks from our garage but never together with the rigid axle. I will be step by step learning and understanding the new truck. Except of the technic we will also test the whole crew in the racing condition” said Ales Loprais.
“I am very happy that after the absence of beautiful terrains in Chile the organizators add Peru district again which sandy areas are excellent and this will make the rally tough” said Ales Loprais.

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.
