JONES GRABS SECOND TITLE IN A ROW | T3
The 2022 T4 champion, Austin Jones, was the most consistent driver in the lightweight prototype category this year. The American took advantage of the setbacks experienced by some of his opponents, including Mitch Guthrie, Seth Quintero and Guillaume de Mevius, to win the title in Dammam by over 50 minutes.

Interview of the day presented by Aramco - Stage 14
Thank you for coming to the Planet for DAKAR. Maybe Robby and Max will attempt the 2025 version in a SPEED UTV, my wishful thinking.
Thank you, thank you Mike for all your work and all your links! It has been a very eventful Dakar.
Unfortunately I see that only one of the American Rally Original bikers made it to the end. I will assume that they will plan to be back next year!
The Chinese Kove biker made it to the end. The Coronel brothers survived to the end as well!
Wow, the 18 year old, Goczal, won in SSV!
Now, I saw that over 20 trucks withdrew on Stage 14. Was it due to the mud? Family got in the way today and I'm not all caught up yet. I can't imagine withdrawing on Stage 14.
I'm glad to see Laia Sanz made it to the end and she's already thinking of the next one!And of course congratulations to Austin Jones for his win!
