Aleš Loprais follows in the footsteps of his uncle Karel Loprais, the six-time winner of the Dakar Rally, the toughest race in the world.

 

He sat in a Tatra race car for the first time when he was seven. It was shortly before his uncle Karel started in the Dakar Rally for the first time in 1986. “I wished to go with him. Next years I insisted that I meet once a dream. Meanwhile, my unlce became a legend. I wandered around car in the time I was studying at the hotel school too. “

 

The another important step to reach his goal, sitting in racing Tatra, is in Aleš’s opinion the beginning of an private Lorais Tatra team led by his father, Milan Loprais. However, in this time had Aleš also a lot of other interests: “I was riding the mountain bike, doing paragliding. I am fascinated by adrenaline.” During paragliding Aleš broke two ribs, thankfully without any future impact.

 

Rising interest in cars meant less time for an extra-mural studies of law. He had to decide between future career as a lawyer or as a businessman in the family company and the home business won. In the company, that provides service and selling spare parts, is responsible for foreign relations. He also makes energetic drinks and takes care about the racing team, both as a full time job.

 

After premiere on hot seat of a navigator right next to his uncle in season 2006 he was ready to sit in the car as a pilot. And right in the next season, in the 2007, finished in the great third place: “We tried a lot our luck and almost everything went well. I had a dream, but I did not tell it anyone, because I was convinced that if I tell it, it would not happen. My dream was to stand on the podium.”

 

In next era of his career Aleš got to the podium in Central Europe rally 2008 (third place), Hungarian Baja (first place), he obtained the third place in Silk Way Rally 2009 and also the fourth place in next years competition. On Dakar 2011 he enthused the fans by his close fight with Kamaz, during which he ended the 26 won stages of Russian team and he obtained two stage triumphs. He said:” I know we are very close and I am really glad that our work gained some success, even though we have a little bit more modest conditions.”

 

Already under wings of new name (InstaForex Loprais Team) and with new special truck, whose shape solution is a small revolution, won difficult Silk Way Rally 2011 in Russia, on home tracks of Kamaz.
