After reaching the finish line in his three previous appearances in the Dakar Rally and after a year of absence, Óscar Fuertes returns to the toughest race in the world in 2022, and once again, he does so with Diego Vallejo on his right.
Fuertes has an extensive track record in rallying. Spanish Gravel Rally Champion (GpN) in 2006; Madrid Gravel Rally Champion overall in 2007; 3rd in the 2008 Spanish Gravel Rally Championship; Spanish Gravel Rally Championship runner-up in 2009, 2010 and 2012 and Spanish Gravel Rally Champion in 2011.
From then he focused on the Off Road Rallies, where he also accumulated numerous successes: 3rd overall in the Spanish Off Road Rally Championship in 2015; 3rd overall in the Spanish Off Road Rally Championship and Two-Wheel Drive category champion in 2016 and Spanish Off Road Rally runner-up in 2017. It goes without saying that Óscar Fuertes is one of the most complete drivers and a reference within Spanish motorsport.
Óscar and Diego have competed together in the Dakar Rally in 2018, 2019 and 2020. In the last edition they achieved their best personal result, finishing third in their class, T1-3, and twenty-fourth overall.
