Two stage victories for Jongbloed Dakar Team in Dakar 2024

The Jongbloed Dakar Team - consisting of Gert Huzink, Rob Buursen, and Martin Roesink - finished the last stage in fourth place. In the second week, they delivered top-notch performances, including two stage victories. Unfortunately, a less-than-ideal start to the Dakar meant they returned home with a twelfth place in the overall standings.

Teamwork from Eurol Rallysport

Eurol Rallysport - with Martin van den Brink, Jan van der Vaet, and Rijk Mouw - also had a smooth final stage, finishing twelfth. The entire Eurol Rallysport team elevated their teamwork, sometimes prioritizing collective goals over individual ambitions. Martin notably assisted Mitchel in securing his third place, which meant settling for seventeenth in the final classification himself.
