Seven new stages, seven new bivouacs. There is a great week-long adventure ahead of the participants of this year’s Morocco Desert Challenge. The trucks competing in Africa will include two from the MKR Technology’s development centre. In fact, a special from the Czech technology centre dominated the race, previously known as the Libya Rally, in 2016.

The fight is over! After two exhausting weeks the 39th Dakar Rally have reached its end. Also the two MKR Technology trucks have arrived at the finish in Buenos Aires. Despite the somewhat mixed feelings of the team from the north of the Czech Republic, with de Baar’s crew having lost their position in the elite five after the previous unlucky day, everyone deserves a great deal of appreciation. Fatigue and exhaustion were beyond belief, but everyone was fighting hard until the very last moment. Although the situation was often hopeless, nobody gave up. The Dakar is about heroes and their heroic performances and these were not to be missed in the case of MKR.

Friday the 13th. Superstitions about the unlucky date and the worries it raises often scare many. Perhaps, after this year’s Dakar members of the North Bohemia based MKR Technology are going to believe the jinx day. The penultimate stage eleven went south in all possible points of view. Both of the racing specials lost a chance for a solid ranking and there was even some doubt as to either of them will cross the finishing line in Buenos Aires on Saturday.

After the unexpected two-day break the Dakar Rally takes off again. Monday’s stage seven marked the beginning of the rally’s second half. However, its end left the crews all alone again, as the marathon part of the famous race, when all teams have to survive without their mechanics and back-up teams, comes up on the schedule. Luckily, performance of Mammoet Rallysport’s Renaults constructed in the north of the Czech Republic was not affected by this.
