Dakar Gold. Together we are champions

The Russian racing team KAMAZ-master won the prestigious Dakar rally-raid for the 19th time. This year, following the results of a multi-day marathon, crews from Russia took the first four places in the truck category and became absolute champions.
The victory at Dakar-2022 is the result of well-coordinated and professional work of all participants, both the KAMAZ-master team itself, from specialists to pilots, and representatives of partner companies. The KAMAZ-master team is always preparing for the race in an enhanced mode, experimenting with new technical solutions, relying on the experience of partners. Among the constant and reliable is ESAB, one of the leaders in the production of equipment and consumables for welding and cutting.
Since 2015, ESAB has been making its professional contribution to the treasury of victories of KAMAZ-master. Rally participants use a range of ESAB welding solutions to prepare their trucks. As part of the cooperation program, ESAB helps team mechanics and pilots learn new welding and cutting techniques, as well as provides modern high-tech equipment, welding consumables and PPE. The main place in the preparation for the race is cutting sheet metal. ESAB equipment allows high-quality cutting of steels from 1 to 100 mm thick, which fully covers the needs of the team. Since 2017, ESAB has also supported the KAMAZ-master Junior racing team.
Dakar-2022 was the presentation of the KAMAZ-435091 truck of the new generation K5. This is a sports version of the main tractor KAMAZ-54901. A year earlier, it was launched into mass production and has already received positive feedback. The two newest K5 trucks showed their advantages, and under the control of the reigning champion Dmitry Sotnikov and five-time champion Eduard Nikolaev, they "brought" an absolute victory to the Russian team.
“We highly appreciate our long-term cooperation with KAMAZ. Collaboration is every time a kind of challenge for us to further develop and expand our "portfolio" of welding solutions. In search of optimal and efficient ways and tools, together we develop innovative areas of mechanical engineering, where welding and cutting play one of the key roles, and we perceive every victory of KAMAZ-master as our own. Only forward and together, to new achievements and awards,” comments Dmitry Kuraksa, Managing Director of ESAB LLC in Russia and the CIS.
Recall that the rally-marathon "Dakar-2022" was held from January 1 to 14 in Saudi Arabia and consisted of 12 stages. The total length of the route was more than 8.3 thousand kilometers, of which 4.3 were special stages.
