Poles dethroned in Dakar. Aron Domżała’s drama awaits help in the desert

For the first time in this edition of the Dakar Rally, none of the Polish teams won the stage in the SSV classification. Aron Domżała experienced a personal drama. The Varsovian rolled over on the route and had to call a service team.

So far, Polish crews competing in the Dakar Rally in the SSV category have given us a lot of reasons to be happy. The event started with Marek Goczał’s victory in the prologue, and the Cobant Energylandia Rally Team driver added a stage win on Tuesday. On Sunday, Aron Domżała was the best, and on Monday – Michał Goczałc.

However, on Wednesday, the reign of the White and Reds in the SSV class on the Dakar was interrupted. Rodrigo Luppi de Oliveira turned out to be the fastest on the route of the fourth stage. The Brazilian traveled over 450 kilometers in 4 hours 44 minutes and 5 seconds.

Austin Jones and Michał Goczał turned out to be not much worse than him, losing 10 and 49 seconds respectively to the winner. The fourth one of the Goczała brothers – Marek.

Aron Domżała survived the drama. The Can-Am driver has long set the tone for competition. At the checkpoint located at kilometer 198, the Varsovian had the best time. However, after exceeding the 298th kilometer, Domżała rolled over several times and severely damaged his vehicle. The Pole called the service team and at the moment he has not yet reached the finish line of the stage.
