To find out more about their strengths, let’s take a look at which vehicle out of the MotoGP RC213V, Juan Velarde’s Edge 540V2 aeroplane, the Trial Honda Montesa RT4, and Isidre Esteve’s Sodicar BV6 car takes away the gold medal in this one-of-a-kind sporting event.
The Lérida-born driver has fulfilled his objective by finishing the rally in 21st place with his BV6 prototype that has adapted controls on the steering wheel.
The Repsol Rally Team driver reaches the decisive part of the hardest rally in the world in 23rd place in the overall classification and second best Spanish car driver.
The driver from Lérida works with his partner Lidia Guerrero, an expert personal trainer who ensures he is fit and well throughout the day.
The Repsol Rally Team driver explains the only difference between his car and all the other Dakar vehicles that have already gone through the inspections in Lima.
