It was a bittersweet day at the Dakar Rally for the Cobant Energylandia Rally Team. Admittedly, Marek Goczał turned out to be the fastest driver of the eleventh stage, with another victory in this edition of the event, but his brother Michał was faced with problems.

The younger brother, Goczała, still had the best time on the 127th kilometer of the fourth stage, but then he had to stop due to a failure in his Can-Amie. It took the Polish crew almost 30 minutes to make the necessary repairs. From that moment on, the driver of Cobant Energylandia Rally Team ceased to count in the fight for the stage win.

Finally, Michał Goczał reached the finish line of the episode in 29 minutes and 7 seconds worse than his brother Marek. This shattered the Pole’s chances of a final victory in Dakar. Until now, he was third in the “general classification” with a slight loss to the leaders.

Aron Domżała also struggled with problems on the route of the eleventh stage. The Varsovian reached the finish line with a 46-minute loss to the winner.

The day before the end of the competition, there was a small earthquake in the SSV classification and it has a new leader. First place in the Dakar Rally was taken by Gerard Farres Guell. The Spaniard only has a 1 minute and 41 second advantage over Austin Jones, so he cannot be too sure of his own before the final stage.

In addition, Marek Goczał jumped to the third place in the overall results, and his brother, due to problems with his Can-Am, fell to the fifth place.
