Interview

“Looking forward to be back in the desert”

Maik Willems, owner of a hotel chain with hotels in Europe, is back in the rally! The bon vivant is happy to exchange the luxury of a hotel room to a pop-up tent in the bivouac. Normally he is in his daily life setting strategy for the long term as a businessman, but not when he is in the Dakar rally. Together with his co-driver, Rob van Pelt, he will be back in Saudi Arabia driving his Toyota Hilux.

M.W.: “I love the life in the Dakar rally. In daily life I’m responsible for the long-term projects of Bastion Hotels. But that doesn’t mean I spent all my time at work. So, when there is the possibility to participate in the Dakar, well I’m off. Together with Rob, the man with the golden hands, I’m looking forward to drive in the desert again. Dakar really feels like having a holiday, driving and to cross the most beautiful landscapes, can you imagine?”
