President Bronisław Komorowski congratulated Rafał Sonik and Krzysztof Hołowczyc on their success in the 37. Dakar Rally. In his letters, the President also thanked them for the emotions and experiences they offered.
For seven years Rafał Sonik has tried to climb the Dakar’s top – and finally he did it. The Polish quad rider completed the last special stage on Saturday, achieving the success he has dreamed about – the first place in the most difficult and the most prestigious rally in the world of the motor sports.
Only 174 km of a special stage stand between Rafał Sonik and the finish line at Buenos Aires. On Friday, Sonik completed the next to last stage of the race on the fourth place and is surely going for the first Polish win in the 37 years of the Dakar Rally.
