|Verva Street Racing: Carlos Sainz and Peugeot 2008 DKR premiere in Warsaw.|
Carlos Sainz, two-time World Rally Champion and the 2010 Dakar Rally winner will join the team of the world’s best rally drivers who, on 20 September 2014, will compete against the best Polish rally drivers during VERVA STREET RACING - DAKAR AT THE NATIONAL STADIUM.
"El Matador" will bring to Warsaw the new powerful 2008 DKR "beast" from the Peugeot Sport-Red Bull-Total stable with which he will try to conquer Rally Dakar 2015. It will be the first public presentation of the new car!
"The Dakar Edition could never take place without the world’s best rally drivers," says Leszek Kurnicki, Executive Director for Marketing at PKN ORLEN. "Sainz’s participation is a great honour for our event, and yet another proof of its prestigious position among the world’s best motorsport events. All the more so, as Sainz will present during VERVA Street Racing a car that in a few months will traverse the desert in the 2015 Dakar Rally."
The first 15,000 thousand people to purchase a ticket for VERVA Street Racing shall receive free entry to the machine park located on the National Stadium’s promenade a few hours before the main event.
This is an absolutely unique opportunity to take an up-close look at this 340-horsepower beast 2008 DKR, which Carlos Sainz will race in the 2015 Dakar Rally. Though four-wheel drives are still at the forefront, engineers put in place an atypical solution for cross-country rallies, i.e. an improved two-wheel drive.
VERVA Street Racing – Dakar at the National Stadium is a one-in-a-kind event that allows fans to witness a competition between the leading rally drivers from Poland and abroad.
The Polish team (including Adam Malysz, Kuba Przygonski, Marek Dabrowski, Jaroslaw Hampel among others) will face it off with guests coming from all over the globe (including Marcus Grönholm, Marc Coma, Bryan Bouffier among others) in six categories.
For the first time, the motoring format of the event will be combined with an exciting musical performance: Jamiroquai will play live during the breaks between subsequent rounds of racing on the desert circuit. The ticket prices start at 49 PLN (approx 12 Euros) and can be purchased online at EBILET.PL.
