After a half-year break from racing in cross-country rallies, Aron Domżała comes back to off-road tracks to fight for victory in Rallye du Maroc. But Polish new generation driver, co-driven by Maciej Marton, switches from T1 group to T3 and comes back to rivalry in a more and more popular group of vehicles: SSV. The same in which he won FIA World Cup in 2016.

Back in spring this year, Aron Domżała took part in Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge behind the wheel of a Toyota Hilux. With this car, together with Maciej Marton, he scored 3rd place in the overall ranking of the World Cup in 2017. After almost three seasons of racing with factory drivers of T1 group teams and his debut in Dakar, the driver from Warsaw decided to come back to the group in which he had started his adventure with cross-country rallies. Thus, on one hand, it will be a known challenge, and on the other hand, a completely new one, as for the last 3 years there have been significant changes in T3 group.

“I am very excited about this project,” Domżała admitted. “Since I last drove an SSV, a lot have changed on these vehicles. They are much stronger, and, supposedly, also tougher. There is no denying that since 2016, when me and Szymon Gospodarczyk won the World Cup, this category has developed remarkably. Now many young, talented competitors from professional teams are racing in this group.”

Domżała has very positive connotations with Morocco. That season, when he won the World Cup in T3 category, was his first in cross-country rallies, and already brought a big success. In the sands of north-eastern Sahara, he celebrated winning that trophy. This year, the same rally will let him check how much the rivalry in SSV category has changed. The Polish duo will drive a CanAm Maverick, serviced by Portuguese team South Racing. Maybe Rallye du Maroc will motivate the crew to participate in other events and stay longer in this category.

“I couldn’t wait for that moment when I come back to the desert. So, Wednesday tests were a great pleasure. Our car is working perfectly and gives a lot of fun to drive it. Fun that I really missed. Over a half of year of break was definitely too much,” Domżała underlined.
