Electric McRae Buggy to Dakar: See You Next Year

“My original goal was to become the first driver to finish the Dakar in a fully electrically powered car. I started the project on the 14th of February with 12 people working full time, but the South Koreans with whom I was working had to pull out. I found a solution with the Chinese but sadly time is our enemy and we’ll have to wait until next year. It’s life and life goes on. We now have a lighter and more powerful buggy and the goal is to aim at the Top 20. For me life without the Dakar isn’t life. The legend of the Dakar is: never give up. My goal is to struggle; it’s good when it isn’t easy. Maybe I’m crazy but I like to be different. The Dakar is like having sex. It’s a way of life.”
