Improving is always the goal

Like many others, the plans Bernhard ten Brinke had to prepare for the Dakar were more or less washed out by the pandemic. Nevertheless the Dutch driver and his Belgian copilot Tom Colsoul managed to do a shortened but intensive program. In the 2018 edition of the Dakar Bernhard ten Brinke was the first Dutchman ever to win a stage in the car category. In 2020 he equaled his best result: 7th in the general standings. Improving is always the goal for business -and sportsman Ten Brinke, who spends as much time and effort as possible coaching his 15 years old son Thomas in Formula 4 championships.

B.t.B.: “We are back with Overdrive, instead of in the Gazoo factory team, but I actually consider that a positive step. It is easier to do what we think is important, and prepare our own program. We couldn’t do as many events as we would have wanted, but with rallies in Poland, Spain, Portugal and Saudi Arabia we were able to prepare thoroughly for the Dakar. There was some getting used to the digital roadbook, but actually it is quite okay.”
