“It’s a real pity there aren’t more all-female crews”

Annett Quandt and Annie Seel both have substantial experience in rally raid. Annett is a trained sport physio who has been working for X-raid since 2012. In 2019 she made her competitive Dakar debut alongside compatriot Andrea Peterhansel, finishing 14th in the SSV class. A year later she co-drove for Camelia Liparoti and while they failed to finish that edition they claimed a mightily impressive second place overall in the T3 class on the 2021 edition. Annie Seel is also Dakar royalty, having entered her first Dakar in 2002 and completed the event no less than five times on a bike. Given their backgrounds it was almost inevitable that they would end up racing the Dakar together, which they did for the first time in 2022 aboard a Yamaha T3 that was still in the development stage. They were back again in 2023 with a much faster, turbo powered version of the car and hovering around the top 10 when a huge triple front flip bent their roll cage and put them out of the race, just 3 days from the end. Hoping to make up for that disappointment they were back together for the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge, but any chances of a result went out the window after they stopped to help teammate Joao Fereira, who was still in contention in the W2RC. Since then Annett celebrated her marriage with a honeymoon on the Tuareg Rallye, finishing second in her Dakar Yamaha with husband Sven Quandt at the wheel. She also raced the Sonora Rally round of the W2RC. Annie Seel for her part has been busy co-driving and coaching in the burgeoning Saudi women’s off-road scene.

Annett Quandt: “The 2023 turbo powered car was going really well and Annie and I were working well as a team, so it was incredibly disappointing not to be able to finish the last Dakar. There were 5 all women crews in 2023 and we really wanted to take that prize. I think for 2024 the only other all-female team will be the T5 truck driven by Anja van Loon, which is really disappointing. It would be nice if we had more encouragement and support… Anyway we’ll be trying our hardest again in 2024. Annie and I both know our strengths and weaknesses and we bring out the best in each other. The T3 category is an incredibly competitive class so if we could finish in a similar position to where we were when we went out last year we’d be happy.”

Annie Seel: “The last two years I’ve been racing in the Saudi off-road championship and there’s a lot of Saudi ladies competing, some of whom will eventually be entering the Dakar. I won a female only navigation, regularity rally called the Rally Jameel and there were over 40 crews on the start line. Its getting really big over there. Which is a good thing because there’s not nearly enough women racing on the Dakar and even less all female crews. It’s a big challenge to be an all-women crew in such a tough rally as the Dakar. It’s not only the driving and navigation, it’s all the other things as well. But we feel confident that the two of us together have all the skills needed to take on whatever is thrown at us. We are both real fighters!”
