The different seasons are ending and you are already playing time to start thinking in the pre-season and above all, the Championships cheering us winters. Obviously, the Dakar is the protagonist in capital letters and the 2014 Edition will be taking more shape with nearly all of the teams putting their mounts “handsome”.

It has been the case so far of the buggies of the Red Bull Team Qatar of SMG with the invaluable help of Carlos Sainz and even the x-RAID Mini have received a new evolution to deal with teams that are leading the revolution. The last to join was Eric Vigouroux who at the head of his own team as he developed his Proto VX 101 under Chevrolet and colors along with Jefferies Racing (former coach of the buggies of Nasser al – Attiyah).

Under the hood, the awesome LS7 Corvette Racing block. A 7.0-liter used among others in the spectacular Corvette Z06, which is connected to a sequential transmission Fortin. The suspensions will again be one of the keys to the whole, reminding us to those springs used by the Hummer, or more recently by the buggies of the Qatar Red Bull Team.

The first pilot will be the own Eric Vigouroux who has faced the last editions of the Dakar in the category Open at the wheel of a Chevrolet Silverado with much less preparation in the usual way. Next to him, B.J. Baldwin, who already participated in 2008 with one of the Robby Gordon Hummer (finished seventh and first of its kind ahead of the own Gordon) and is a well-known driver’s Trophy Trucks in the USA.
