“Bring the car home every day and let the race come to you”

Jürgen Schröder already has eight Dakar participations under his belt, since making his debut as a co-driver for Alfie Cox in the first South American edition in 2009. The 60-year-old German entrepreneur therefore knows what it takes to master the world's toughest rally, having reached the finish line as a driver on two occasions -with his son Daniel in 2015 (37th) and his son Maximilian in 2018 (22nd). This year, Jürgen and Daniel will team up again for the Germany-based South Racing team, who managed to get all five of their cars to the finish line a year ago. The father-and-son duo have already had a couple of outings in 2018, running into a bit of bad luck in Poland and Kazakhstan, but Jürgen is hoping that if all goes well in Peru, they may be able to target a place in the top 10.

"Max has to do his Master's, he's busy in January, so I'm taking Daniel with me instead this year. They're both good. I hope to improve my result, it just depends how it goes. My target is to come something like top 10, or near the top 10. If everything runs smoothly, maybe it's possible. I'm sure that I can't win! There are so many good cars and good drivers. If I'm realistic I suppose I really want to finish in the top 20, and if possible close to the top 10. "We had a good run in Poland, although unfortunately with six kilometres to go we had an electrical problem, but it wasn't too bad. Kazakhstan was also a good race but we threw it away on the last day; there was nothing in the roadbook and we end up rolling the car. Otherwise it would have been top 10. But the Dakar is a bigger competition, a longer rally. If you have one bad day, you have a couple of days to make it better. The key with Dakar is to be constant every day, bring the car home and let the race come to you.”
