“I'm much better than I was in 2019”

Annett Fischer has been steadily improving since she got her first taste of the Dakar in 2019. Three years ago, the 36-year-old German finished 14th in the SSVs with compatriot Andrea Peterhansel, whose husband Stephane is the most decorated competitor in Dakar history (14 titles). After getting behind the wheel on her debut, Annett switched to the co-driver position for the next two editions, guiding Italian star Camelia Liparoti to a sensational second place in the light prototypes class (T3) at Dakar 2021. Annett returns to the driver's seat for her fourth participation, and she is joined by another rally raid legend: Annie Seel, who has done the Dakar eight times and won the women's class in the bikes in 2010. The Swede also set a new altitude record on Mount Everest in 2003, riding a Honda XL250 to an eye-watering 5,305 metres! Annett and Annie have been acquaintances on the racing scene for many years, but only got to know each other properly in recent months, hinting at their potential with a third-place finish at December's Hail Rally. For Dakar 2022 they will be racing a new Yamaha XYZ1000R prepared by X-raid, and looking to achieve the best possible result against the likes of Josef Machacek, Chaleco Lopez and the Red Bull Off-Road Junior Team. Annett has been involved in motorsport for over a decade, catching the bug when a friend took her to watch a local race in Munich. She is also a trained sports physiotherapist who has worked for X-raid since 2012. Earlier this year, she and fellow German driver Claudia Hürtgen took part in an intensive two-day workshop run by Nasser Al-Attiyah, which she said helped to improve her driving skills ahead of the FIA World Cup season. Despite a high-speed crash at the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge, she finished the campaign in fifth place (T3) and is now relishing the prospect of another Dakar adventure. She and Annie will also be driving in support of the skate-aid charity project (https://www.skate-aid.org/en/), which encourages youngsters in underprivileged areas to get involved in sport.

A.F.: “Dakar 2021 was really impressive, I have to say. We had a super new car and nobody expected us on the podium, we didn't expect it ourselves! But we had a really great race, and it was an absolutely amazing feeling to go on the podium. I tried to support Camelia as well as possible in her driving, and avoid making mistakes in co-driving. When she first asked me to co-drive for her in 2020, I wasn't actually sure if I could do it! I'd never done it before in a professional race. So it was really cool and showed big trust from her side. I learned a lot in those two years, even if my real focus was to get back behind the steering wheel and improve as a driver. I think the most recent World Cup races have proven it was a good idea. I understand the co-driver's job better, and it's much easier to understand what the co-driver means when they're speaking to you. I think I'm also more aware of what I want to know as a driver, especially with the caps, which are very important at the Dakar. I'm much better than I was in 2019, so I hope it'll help us get a good result. I'm really looking forward to driving with Annie Seel. The Hail Rally was the first time we were in the car together, but I think we've already got to know each other quite well. The most important thing, if you're trying to survive the Dakar, is to get on with your co-driver! We had one day in Hail where we really struggled with navigation, but it was good for me to realise she was struggling as well, so there were no fights at all. Our objectives for Dakar 2022? Of course, I would like to finish, no question. We're going to be driving a totally new car, which hasn't really been tested yet. So we'll try to keep the car in one piece, which is the most important thing for us. But still, if you put your helmet on, you're in race mode, and you try to achieve the best result you can!”
