 Michal Goczal is still looking for his first Dakar podium. Superb 4th in the SSVs for his first participation, in 2021, he confirmed his speed with a 5th place the following year, winning two stages. A technical problem prevented him from fighting for the top positions in 2023. After experiencing it, he changed his plans to try to help his brother Marek, who is 16 years his senior, and his nephew Eryk. A choice that paid off since Eryk won the SSV race and Marek finished 3rd! Michal inherited a love of racing from his older brother, who bought him his first quad when he was just five years old. Twenty-seven years later, the whole family is fighting for Dakar glory. A fairy tale? Yes, but it could be even better if Michal joins them on the podium! Will 2024 be his year? Hard to say, as the family leave the T4 class and will make its debut in Challenger T3. To achieve his goal, Michal will once again team up with his talented co-driver Szymon Gospodarczyk. The 33-year-old Pole had a busy year: he did the entire W2RC season, as well as some WRC rounds. He tasted the Dakar podium with Claude Fournier in 2018, and now aims to repeat this performance with his compatriot.
