The Dakar rally marathon, as a rule, shows its complexity and cunning in the early stages. Someone soon after the start is let down by a technician, someone starts to drive right away at full speed and is mistaken. But this year, troubles began even before the start.

But the Czech debut in the car category will not take place. On Thursday, while running in the car, he crashed his Ford Raptor, turning over through the bow. With the racer and the navigator, everything is in order, but just in case, they were sent to the hospital for medical examination. Nevertheless, they certainly will not be able to take part in Dakar.

“Martin Koloma and Zhiri Strauss will not go to the start,” confirmed Martin Prokop on team Koloma’s teammate. “With a damaged machine, they will not be able to pass a technical check.”
