Interview

To take it slow and steady

Iacob Buhai is Romanian by birth but has been living and working in Spain for the last 25 years where he has a business in the south of the country building commercial green houses. His competition background up until now has mainly been in 4X4 trials, interspersed with the odd African raid, but that focus shifted when his good friend Mihai Ban persuaded him to create a team together and enter the Dakar. To that end Iacob bought a Toyota Hilux 3.0 Diesel T1 from Barcelona based Jaton Racing and entered the 2021 Rallye du Maroc. Although he didn’t finish the race, as well as providing invaluable experience, it also produced his co-driver in the shape of Tudor Turdean, a fellow Romanian enduro rider, who was driving the support truck in Morocco. Given their modest rally-raid experience, the pairing have equally modest ambitions for the 2022 Dakar. They plan to take it slow and steady to ensure a much-desired finish and will be taking a large stock of spare parts to maximise their chances of realising their dream.
