The Goczal family show
Marek Goczal is the eldest of the two Polish brothers who made a remarkable debut on the 2021 Dakar by finishing 8th and 4th respectively in T4. Marek, 46, is also the father of Eryk, 16, still too young for the Dakar, but already competing in the national drift championship. The Goczal's ultimate goal? For all three to be on the Dakar podium! And Marek doesn’t lack ambition. In Poland, he’s the boss of the country's biggest theme park: Energylandia. Last January, the Goczal brothers finished just off the podium, Marek 4th and Michal 5th! To achieve his goal of getting the whole family on the Dakar and why not the W2RC podium, Marek has put his trust in Lukasz Laskawiec as co-driver. His compatriot has already finished on the Dakar podium in the quad category in 2011 before winning the world championship the following year. Marek was third overall going into the second round of the W2RC. With 68 points, he was tied with Rokas Baciuska, a newcomer to rally-raid like him. In November 2021, Marek finished 2 nd on the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge. He won it last March ahead of the Lithuanian and Austin Jones. The American conserves his lead overall just ahead of the Pole. 4 points separate the factory Can-Am driver from the Cobant-Energylandia Aleksander Piorczynski. Baciuska is third 11 points behind the Goczal train. The T4 category is the most fiercely contested.
