2021 : 27th overall

5th Sertões 2021


“My goal this year is a top 15 finish”

For his first Dakar outing in 2021 Marcelo Gastaldi set himself the ambitious goal of finishing first rookie aboard his Century Racing CR6. And he very nearly pulled it off, holding that much sought after position right up until the second leg of the marathon stage, when it all unravelled while the Brazilian was trying to overtake in the dust. The resulting crash necessitated the intervention of his rapid assistance and saw him limp into the bivouac at the end of the 8th stage a lowly 52nd. Still, for a man who has only been racing cars for 2 years it was a more than promising debut and one the man from Manaus intends to improve on in 2022. To that end he has got himself a new co-driver in the form of young professional Brazilian navigator Cadu Sachs and together they achieved a stage win and 4 top 3 finishes in the Rally Dos Sertões in their CR6 and as well as familiarising themselves with the new electronic road book on the recent Rallye du Maroc aboard a T4 BBR Can-Am. They have also been racing a Trophy Truck in the American Score series and entered 2 four-day off-road races back home in Brazil, all with the aim of upping their game this coming January.

“Dakar 21 was the biggest sporting challenge I had faced up until then in my rally career. I learned a lot, got to see up close the best drivers and machines in the world and even felt what it takes to accompany a few of them at a top 10 rhythm some of the days. For Dakar 22 we are coming with some more experience, especially in the dunes and the car is also feeling better and better each time we get in. I think we have what it takes to keep improving and enjoy a great Dakar. My goal this year is a top 15 finish.”
