InstaForex covered this year's Dakar Rally in order to provide its customers with play-by-play reviews of how the events were unfolding. Together with you we rooted for InstaForex Loprais Team which became a regular participant of this thrilling off-road race. Just like organizers promised, it was a difficult competition for all the teams without exception. In addition to rough tracks and harsh weather conditions, which tested their truck’s limits, racers also had to cope with strenuous physical exertion and sheer weariness. Competitors jostled till the very last minutes of the race. Our team was held up as true professionals pushing their strength limits. Even an unexpected breakdown of the Queen 69 on the penultimate stage, which threw the team back to the last position, was unable to break their fighting spirit. In the final, the team was 6th overall. It was a fierce competition but InstaForex Loprais Team got over the hump. However, we will keep on hoping that the next year’s Dakar will be more successful and our guys headed by Ales Loprais will win a podium place. For now, we want to express our gratitude on behalf of InstaForex Loprais Team to all supporters, friends, and fans that closely followed the ups and downs of the race and believed in our victory till the end. We could hardly be where we are now without this warm support. InstaForex and its partners have responded in kind, preparing special prizes for the winners of a traditional after-race quiz. The team’s leader Ales Loprais will hand over the prizes at a fan meeting that will be held on February 1, 2014.
We look forward to seeing you at the 2015 Dakar opening ceremony!
