“I want to win for the team”

2024 marks José Ignacio Cornejo Florimo's 9th Dakar. The Chilean is pleased with the evolution of his career and has been with the Honda factory team for the past few seasons. Very self-critical of his performance and results, he doesn't hesitate to say that 8th place on the 2023 Dakar isn't among his best performances, which left a bitter taste in his mouth. His career took off after his first two Dakar participations. Days before the 2018 edition, when he had decided to withdraw for financial reasons, he received a call from the Honda Team to join them, replacing the then-injured Paulo Gonçalves. "Nacho" made the most of that exceptional opportunity, and an impeccable performance earned him 10th place overall. In the 2019 Dakar, he worked hard to improve that position and achieved a commendable 8th place result. As an official Monster Energy Honda Team rider, the native of Iquique had a sensational performance in 2020. He took two victories, including the final stage, holding off Ricky Brabec and fighting neck and neck with Matthias Walkner and Luciano Benavides. The 2021 edition was his toughest. "Nacho" was leading the general classification and was second in stage 10, one minute behind Ricky Brabec, when he crashed hard at km 252 of the special. Although he completed the stage, he decided to retire from the race in agreement with the medical team. The Chilean, always self-demanding, described the fall as "a rookie mistake". In 2022, he suffered a delay in the opening stage but recovered with two stage victories. In the second week, he showed great pace, which led to a 6th place finish. Encouraged by Honda's Constructors' Title, "Nacho" says that the team is very solid with the addition of Skyler Howes to the squad, which includes Adrien van Beveren, Ricky Brabec and his compatriot Pablo Quintanilla.

J.I.C.F.: “We didn't get the result we hoped for on the 2023 Dakar. It wasn't one of my best rallies. Although I had some good stages, I lost a lot of time at the start, and it was hard to catch up. I was left with a bitter taste because I couldn't improve on my previous performances. I didn't get the results I wanted in Mexico and Argentina either. The high points of the season were Abu Dhabi (4th) and Morocco (6th), where I was fighting for the best times in all the stages.”
“We won the Constructors' Championship, and that is always good. We are still a solid team. Skyler Howes has joined the team. It's good for the Dakar to have several riders fighting for the team. We are working hard in the pre-season testing and have a lot of desire and attitude for the next Dakar, where there is a mix of terrain and a vast desert. Personally, it will be my 9th Dakar. The years have gone by fast. I'm satisfied with how my career has evolved. And I am still ambitious. My best result is P4 in 2020. So, the idea is to battle for the podium, for the top places, and hopefully, I can give the team a victory, which we couldn't achieve last year”.

Dakar 2024: Brabec and Sainz, masters of the dunes

The 46th edition of the Dakar, the 5th to be organised in Saudi Arabia, has finished after more than 4,700 kilometres of specials and a total distance of almost 8,000 kilometres, which tested the riders, drivers, co-pilots and crews, from the ancient city of AlUla to the shores of the Red Sea, passing through the oceans of dunes in the Empty Quarter.

Brabec and Sainz show who’s boss


The terrain proves decisive! With more than 4,700 kilometres of specials over two weeks of racing, it is still possible to predict where the victory will be won. The dunes of the Empty Quarter definitely played an important role, while the volcanic stones on the first stage also played a part. Indeed, we could list the damage recorded on each of the stages in one...

Ignacio ‘Nacho’» Cornejo: “It was a tough day emotionally”

A mechanical problem cost the Chilean rider the chance to aim for a podium that had seemed within his grasp. He is more than 24 minutes behind Adrien Van Beveren in 3rd place.

Fuel pump problems for Nacho

Cornejo ground to a halt after 115 km for ten minutes. At refuelling, the Chilean explained that the fuel pump for his front petrol tank had broken down. Once the rear tank was empty, he was forced to stop to remove the front tank and pour its contents into the rear tank on his Honda.

Dakar 2024 - Stage 10 | When the going gets tough, the tough get going


Fresh memories never lie. Seeing the loop carved out near AlUla, starting and finishing at the bivouac where everyone had gathered less than two weeks ago, it was a given that this special was going to be a wild ride. The timed sector stretched for 371 kilometres on sandy terrain with a need for speed, either on the track or off-track, sometimes through rocky areas,...
