Interview

“Unexpected changes”

The evening before Erik van Loon was due to travel to Saudi Arabia, he received the message that he tested positive for Corona. As a result, Van Loon is forced to cancel his participation in the Dakar rally. It would have been his thirteenth Dakar. Instead, another Dutch rally driver will take his place: Bernhard ten Brinke.

B.T.B.: “It is very unfortunate for Erik van Loon and I’m sorry for him. At this moment, in this world, it can happen to anyone. As we speak, I’m about to fly from my holiday strait to Yeddah, Saudi Arabia. After some conversations and a lot of phone calls I’m on my way.
Lucky me, I kept myself in a good condition and reasonably fit but I’m also unprepared. So, we must do it with my experience because at the same time everything else is quite new for me. A new navigator, Sebastien Delaunay. Sebastien is new for me but certainly an experienced navigator. And then, a new car which is a completely rebuilt Toyota Hilux T1+, perfectly prepared for Van Loon. Still, I don’t feel any pressure or stress. It is very exciting and despite the minimal preparation we can still make a beautiful and strong Dakar.”
