Astara Team and SMC Motorsport. Soul and spirit of Dakar
“I just hope to be able to fulfil what you guys have done tonight”, Óscar Fuertes.
During yesterday’s stage, an accident almost forced us to abandon the Dakar. In fact, there were those who said that we were out and even we feared that possibility. However, the tenacity and effort of Óscar Fuertes and Diego Vallejo allowed us to make it to the finish line, and above all, the superhuman work of the entire Astara Team and SMC Motorsport, who worked all night long, enabled the 01 Concept to be ready for a new journey this morning
What we have experienced in the last hours in the Astara Team cannot be summed up in words. Perhaps, there´s no better way to express it than watching the videos that accompany these lines and listen to the words of Óscar Fuertes before the start of the ninth stage of the Dakar: “I only hope to be able to fulfil what you guys have done tonight”
We are very proud of our team, aren´t we?
