Interview

“A dream come true to participate together with my son”

Martin van den Brink is never afraid to take a bit of a risk and come up with a novelty. Even ahead of the Dakar 2019 the Dutchman has broken a record by bringing his son Mitchel to the start. At the age of only 16 Mitchel van den Brink is the youngest ever to compete in the rally. In the Morocco Desert Challenge and the Silk Way Rally the youngster gained some experience at the side of his father and experienced co-pilot Wouter de Graaff. In October Mitchel got his racing license as a navigator and was granted an exemption, so he can officially take his place in the cab of the brutal Renault Sherpa.

M.v.B.: “Normally 18 years is the minimum age for participating in the heaviest rally in the world, but ASO has made an exemption because Mitchel has proved himself in other rallies. In addition to ASO, the Dutch federation KNAF (rally license) and Mitchel’s school the IVA Driebergen (leave in January) also cooperated. For Mitchel it will be a learning year. We are going to train him with the aim to have him drive the Dakar Rally in two years, as an 18-year-old. Then he will be also the youngest driver ever. For me as a father it is a dream come true to participate together with my son.”
