Al Jafla returns with bigger ambitions

After a learning experience that ended with a 41st overall, Khalid Al Jafla returns to the Dakar with far higher expectations. The driver from Dubai is one of the most experienced men in the Middle-East. He indeed has several Abu Dhabi Desert Challenges under the belt and competed in all parts of the Middle-East including Saudi Arabia, yet the Dakar was still on the bucket list of the 57-year-old. Al Jafla is ambitious and can’t be satisfied with his performance in 2021. After hesitating to take part in a T3 Lightweight Prototype, Al Jafla will again be in a bigger and more powerful Toyota Hilux. At his side, he’ll have one of the most experienced co-drivers of the Dakar: Charly Gotlib. The Belgian has seen it all, lived it all. His first appearance -on a bike- goes way back to 1987. Since then he has competed in cars, SSVs and trucks, claiming the event with Hans Stacey in 2007.

KAJ: “The Dakar represented a dream for me. I decided to go for it when it moved to Saudi Arabia. I’ve been in motorsports since 2010 competing in cross-country rallies. I do it for fun but also for business. My goal on this Dakar is to finish in the Top 10.”
