“New motivation in my quest for victory”

2024 could be Nasser Al Attiyah's year. For two reasons. Firstly, and in chronological order, because he will be setting out to conquer a sixth Dakar title, possibly his third consecutive. A treble that only Ari Vatanen and Pierre Lartigue have achieved before him in a car. His other challenge will come at the end of July/beginning of August, at the National Shooting Centre in Chateauroux during the Paris Olympic Games. The Qatari will be competing in his 7th Olympiad, hoping to win a second medal in skeet after the bronze he won in London 2012. But let's return to his first mission. The 53-year-old could have opted for the easy way out by sticking with the ultra-competitive Toyota Hilux T1+ that he drove to the title in 2019, 2022 and 2023. No, Al Attiyah is taking on a new challenge. By joining the Prodrive team, he dreams of winning with a fourth different vehicle: a Volkswagen Race Touareg in 2011, a Mini in 2015, a Toyota and therefore a Hunter for this new edition. It's a challenge partly calculated in the knowledge that his car has already flirted with victory, driven by Sebastien Loeb, his runner-up in 2022 and 2023. Naturally, he is taking on board his trusty co-driver Mathieu Baumel, a four-time winner who is hoping to get closer to the record holder for victories in the right-hand seat, Jean-Paul Cottret (7 wins with Stéphane Peterhansel). 2024 could, therefore, be an exceptional year for the Franco-Qatari duo, following on from a brilliant 2023 season: another W2RC title and successes in the Dakar, Mexico and Argentina.

NAA: “The last Dakar was difficult for everyone. It's incredible that I was able to hold on to my title. I'm so happy to have won five times. I'm now delighted to be part of a new team and to take on a new challenge for the next Dakar. It gives me new motivation in my quest for victory on the Dakar. I've won the Dakar five times with three different teams. We will make rally history if we win the 2024 Dakar with the Prodrive Hunter. It's a great feeling to be back with Sebastien Loeb. I have a lot of respect for him. We're going to try to work together to win the Dakar. I love this Dakar fortnight. I work a lot with the team, and we share many things, and I appreciate that. Three or four of us have dominated the Dakar over the past ten years. The level is impressive. You have to give it your all to win the Dakar. I have a long history with Prodrive. I drove for them in rallying with a Subaru. I won a lot of races with this team. When I saw that Prodrive was getting into rally-raid, I knew they would be very competitive in the future. Sébastien Loeb has finished runner-up in the last two years, but those results were due to a few mistakes. 2024 will be a special year. Not only do I have the chance to participate in my seventh Olympic Games, but I also have the opportunity to win the Dakar with a fourth different manufacturer.”

MB: “Nasser is as you see him on television. He is very generous, very kind, always friendly and smiling. And fortunately for me, he's the same in the car during the rally, whatever happens. We always keep calm and avoid stress, which helps us work better, especially for me with navigation. So, I'm so fortunate. He's like a brother to me now. During the year, I am with him more than with my family. This relationship and this mutual trust have an impact on our results. We're together on rallies but also away from them. I think the Hilux is obviously still quite capable of fighting for victory in the 2024 Dakar, but that doesn't guarantee the continuation of what we want to do with Nasser. We have spent seven years with Toyota and have brought them all their Dakar titles, including three victories. We've also won the Rally-Raid World Cup and the Bajas four times and were W2RC World Champions in 2022 and 2023. We're off on a new adventure. We are extremely motivated and ready to take on new challenges.”

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. The major winners of the 2024...

Nasser Al Attiyah: "A weak point that we need to fix"

Nasser Al Attiyah overcame two punctures and a broken rear arm to finish in the top 3 of stage 7, less than 10 minutes behind his teammate, Sébastien Loeb. The Qatari is no longer in the running for the title, but he remains determined to light the fireworks in the second half of the race.

Loeb, Van Beveren, Giroud, De Soultrait: Vive la France!


Not everyone is equally equipped to deal with the Empty Quarter. The programme for the second part of the 48 HR chrono stage was again sandy, but the portions of dunes could vary greatly in their dimensions. Consequently, four bikers spent the night at rest point A in the company of fifty cars and trucks, meaning they still had to tackle 425 km (FIM) and 354 km...

Nasser Al Attiyah: “I will do my best for Seb to win because we are a team”

Nasser Al Attiyah suffered mechanical problems 50 km from the finish of stage six and has lost 2 hours and 40 minutes to see his chances of obtaining a sixth triumph on the Dakar go up in smoke. The Qatari driver’s only ambition now is to try and secure as many points as possible for the championship and to help his team-mate Sébastien Loeb.

"Quintafondo" and "Nasser Al Attack"


As the name suggests, the Empty Quarter is not exactly teeming with conventional architectural or cultural tourist attractions. Yet, for rally-raid enthusiasts, it is a staggering treasure trove with dunes that stretch as far as the eye can see. Millions? Billions, perhaps? Who knows, it is hard to count while in the throes of sand fever. The riders and crews were...
