2024: 7th (6th Ultimate)

While his brother Marcos first raced the Dakar back in 2013, Cristian Baumgart only has one Dakar on the scoreboard so far, from when he raced an SSV in 2019 and finished 9th in class. He is however, like his brother, an accomplished off-road competitor who has won the Rally dos Sertoes four times (out of 22 participations) as well as being three times Mitsubishi Cup champion and two times Brazilian Cross Country Vice Champion. As a warm up to their 2024 W2RC campaign, Cristian and his faithful co-driver  Alberto Andreotti finished 7th on the 2023 Sonora Rally, 24th on the Rally dos Sertoes and 19th T1+ on the Rallye du Maroc, all aboard their X Rally Team run Prodrive Hunter, the car his brother will also drove last January. Since the end of January, Cristian has teamed up with another compatriot, Gustavo Gugelmin, the most capped Brazilian co-driver on the circuit with twelve world cup and championship seasons and three Dakar victories under his belt. With Reinaldo Varela, Gustavo won the 2018 Dakar in UTV before becoming world number one in T3 in 2019. With the American, he again achieved world number one status in 2021, this time in T3, before winning the Dakar in T4 in 2022, then in T3 in 2023 to finish the season on the W2RC podium in its inaugural year. 5th Challenger on the 2024 Dakar, Gustavo made his Ultimate debut in Portugal under the X-Rally Motorsports team with the yellow bee Hunter.
