The MAZ-SPORTauto team, with the support of G-Energy engine oils, took a confident start in the 43rd legendary Dakar rally-marathon, which takes place in Saudi Arabia. The grand opening of the race took place on Saturday, after which the so-called prologue awaited the participants - a short 11-kilometer special stage in Jeddah. According to its results, Belarusian crews at MAZ took the first two lines of the truck classification protocol: Sergei Vyazovich showed the best time, just a second ahead of his teammate Alexei Vishnevsky.
