In his third Dakar, Michal Goczal is thrilled to be lining up as one of three entrants from his motorsport-mad family. The 31-year-old has raced the last two editions alongside older brother Marek, whose 18-year-old son Eryk will be joining the fray in 2023. Having already come fourth and fifth in the SSVs, Michal is openly targeting the top three, with the dream scenario getting all three Goczal-driven cars onto the podium. Michal inherited a love of racing from his older brothers, who bought him his first quad when he was just five years old. He is 16 years younger than Marek, but jumped at the chance to join him on their national cross-country circuit a few years ago. After winning the Polish Cup and the Polish Championship in successive seasons, he showed he had what it takes at the Dakar with fourth on his debut. Michal will once again team up with talented co-driver Szymon Gospodarczyk, who has had a busy season in traditional rally with Mikolaj Marczyk; they took part in six rounds of the WRC and won the Polish round of the ERC. A busy year of work meant that Michal couldn't do much racing in 2022, but he still heads to Saudi Arabia as one of the top contenders in the T4s.
