Belarus’ MAZ wins first ever medal at Dakar Rally 2018

Sergei Vyazovich managed to secure second place in the general classification after the 286-kilometer Stage 14 in Cordoba, Argentina.

The last race was a comfortable run for the crew led by Sergei Vyazovich, navigator Pavel Garanin, and mechanic Andrei Zhigulin.

The retirement of Argentina’s Federico Villagra due to mechanical problems promoted Sergei Vyazovich to second place overall.

The Belarusian driver came in 8th at Stage 14, just seven minutes behind the winner Ton Van Genugten (Iveco).

Russia’s Eduard Nikolaev took another Dakar title – his KamAZ team now has 14 wins.
