Dakar 2021 Stage 11

Anton Shibalov moved the counter up to 5 successes in total since his debut on the Dakar and should finish second, like last year, but this time behind Dmitry Sotnikov. Loprais lost a position overall, after managing 8th today. yesterday he complained about the team tactics od Kamaz, resuling him sandwiched between four Kamaz trucks, resulting in having to drive the whole stage in dust.

Dakar 2021 Stage 8

Buggyra drivers have finished the two-day marathon as Macháček keeps improving

Josef Macháček handled the 2nd half of the marathon stage perfectly. The Dakar legend finished in 2nd place in the Lightweight Prototypes category, and he holds the 2nd position in the overall standings as well. Ignacio Casale set his personal best in the Truck category with 5th place.

Josef Macháček and Pavel Vyoral put on an incredible performance. “We didn’t want to get a puncture or get lost. Big kudos to Pavel, who did a great job. There were so many others who got lost and went in the wrong way. It was difficult again, but I’m glad to successfully finish it today,” said relieved Josef Macháček, while his teammate Tomáš Enge faced more technical issues and he finished the stage with 2 hours loss.

Ignacio Casale, the new Chilean driver of the Tatra Buggyra Racing team, did well in the Trucks category. He finished in 5th place, achieving his personal best result so far. “I’m really happy. The navigation was challenging today, and I have to thank my navigator Alvaro. We didn’t have a single problem, we didn’t need to get out of the truck, and that made a difference. The 5th place is great and tomorrow, we’ll continue,” said Ignacio who currently holds 9th place in the overall standings.

Martin Šoltys lost 3 and half minutes on the 375-kilometre-long stage, finishing in 9th place. But he lost only 12 minutes to the winner Shibalov with Kamaz. That just shows how tight it is in the Trucks category.

The 9th stage should not be easy at all. It will lead on the shore of the Red Sea and the crews can expect a fast route, but with light sand. The organisers expect it to be the most challenging stage of the Dakar Rally 2021.

Not a Tatra: Buick based central tailfin convertible

Buick1936with BohmanandSchwartzbodyTopperFilmHughGrant

This is the car shown in the movie “Topper” (1937) with Cary Grant and Constance Bennett. It had a single fin on the back deck. It was a modified 1936 Buick customized by Bohman & Schwartz and fitted with special controls, including a second hidden steering wheel. As a stuntman drove the car using the hidden wheel, it would appear as if the vehicle was being driven by a ghost. The car has been remodeled a few times since 1937.
