Rocket Rokas

Rokas Baciuska had just turned 22 for his first Dakar last January, but despite his young age, he is no stranger to the ups and downs of motorsport. After a brilliant career in karting that resulted in a national title, in 2017 he entered rallycross part-time before winning the European Rallycross Super 1600 championship. In 2019 Baciuska moved up to RX Supercars, the premier class at World Rallycross level, with a best result of 4th place at the French round, narrowly missing out on the podium due to a mechanical problem. 2020 should have been the year where everything fell into place for the young Lithuanian, but uncompetitive machinery prompted him to throw in the towel and switch to rally-raid, a hugely popular sport back home in Lithuania. On his debut at the Andalucía Rally, he just missed out on a podium finish due to a penalty for changing his tyre in an inappropriate area. Last January, the Lithuanian finished his first Dakar directly on the SSV podium, behind the Monster Energy Can-Am driver Austin Jones. An impressive debut that suggests there’s plenty of potential for improvement! Rokas finished second on the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge behind Marek Goczal. With 107 points against 118 for the Pole and 122 for Jones, ‘Rocket Rokas’ is already in orbit. On the Rallye du Maroc he will team up with a new navigator. Oriol Vidal is an ex-quad competitor and one of the first generation of SSV Dakar competitors. He has raced the Dakar a total of 4 times, navigating for Saleh Alsaif on the 2021 edition
