Corbett returns with big ambitions

As the years go by the Century Racing team has become bigger, better and is getting closer to the traditional top structures of the Dakar. It actually all started thanks to Mark Corbett. The CEO of Century Property Development, is indeed the man behind the project that started back in 1996 when he was then driving a Jeep. A regular figure of all major races of the South African off-road championship, he first appeared on the Dakar back in 2012 and finished at an outstanding 24th position overall. At the time he was competing with François Jordaan in a custom built CR4 buggy. Since then the team has developed and new versions of the buggy have appeared. The latest one, the CR6, driven by Mathieu Serradori even claimed a stage win on the 2020 Dakar. Present on the rally six years ago when he improved his best performance (17th), Mark Corbett returns with big ambitions for himself and his team that will also feature four other buggies with the likes of former quad rider Brian Baragwanath and Brazilian Marcelo Gastaldi. For his third Dakar, the passionate businessman who will be celebrating his 48th birthday on the day 3 of the Dakar, will have at his side Rodney Burke who finished 39th of the Dakar as Colin Matthews’ navigator in 2016.
