Interview

“The objective is to win, but first finish”

They will be one of the stories to follow on the Dakar. Casey Currie eats, sleeps, drinks, lives motorsport especially when it comes to off-road racing. As a member of a family of enthusiast of the discipline, he climbed onto his first bike at the age of 5 and took part in his first race in a pickup at the age of 16. Since then he has crisscrossed the United States, built all sorts of machines and has become passionate about UTVs. It is undoubtedly by watching his idol, and current rival, Robby Gordon, that the desire to set off on the Dakar adventure came about. Currie will behind the wheel of a CanAm Maverick, that he drove to victory on the Desafio Inca. After this victorious first taste of the Peruvian dunes, the Anaheim, California native will have to be patient in his quest for a title on the Dakar. To make up for his lack of experience, he will have Rafael Tornabell by his side. The Spaniard has done the Dakar more than 15 times, with three top Ten 10 results (with José-Luis Pena in SxS last year). The Catalan has also won the FIA World Cup in SxS this year with Pena.

C.C.: The Dakar is clearly the toughest rally. I have been following it since I was a baby. It was a dream to take part in and this year the stars have lined up favourably. I was influenced by Robby Gordon. He was a role model of mine for long time even though today he has become a rival. The decision to do the Dakar in SxS is I think a good option. It will fit in nicely with my race programme. In entering the Dakar, of course the objective is to win. But in the first year; I just want to finish and not have any problems. My experience on this year’s Desafio Inca was great. We came to understand just how essential navigation was. Some days we beat the Minis and Fords. I am comfortable in the dunes. It is my turf. We will have to to repeat the performance over 10 days without having any problems. Anything can happen."
