Even bigger expectations for the CR6-T

The man behind the steering wheel is also one of the key reasons why the Century Racing buggy is going so well. Brian Baragwanath isn’t only fast, he also knows his car by heart. Indeed for several years now he’s been working for Century Racing as an engineer. And his main pride is seeing ten of his “babies” including his on the start line of the next Dakar. But his Dakar adventure started on a far smaller beast. He was indeed on a quad when he discovered the rally in South America. Despite retiring from his first Dakar in 2015, Brian Baragwanath impressed a year later when he finished on the podium of the rally. A severe elbow injury forced him to stop riding and turn to four wheels. His comeback on the Dakar occurred in 2021 and what a comeback it was. As soon as the opening prologue, he hit hard by capturing second spot and managed a similar performance several days later on a proper Dakar stage. After finishing 32nd, Baragwanath flew to 14th spot last year. His expectations are even bigger for this 45th edition. Alongside Leonard Cremer with whom he started competing back in 2016 on the South African cross-country scene, the 34-year-old will be driving the newest CR6-T model powered by a V6 engine.

Brian Baragwanath: "A very fast stage that suits the two-wheel drive"

Fifth today, more than 13 minutes behind the winner, the man from South Africa brought the raw power of his two-wheel drive car to bear, although the altitude affected its performance.

"A very fast stage today. It suits the two-wheel drive. It's a little bit difficult to win a stage like this at high altitude. If we have this terrain at low altitude,...
