Interview

“We can't wait to start this beautiful event”

A serious motorcycle accident in 2018 prompted Jeffrey Otten to make the transition from two to four-wheel motorsport, starting with a place in the 2019 Peugeot 206 Rally Cup. But when Otten saw an SSV for sale on the internet, it planted a seed in his mind that resulted in construction of his own machine and -after building experience with outings in Poland and Tunisia- an entry in the Dakar. 27th in last year’s event, the Dutchman returns with good friend Marco Bouman as his new co-driver and will be seeking to crack the top 20.


J.O.: “I had an accident in 2018 during a rally with a motorcycle and broke a number of vertebrae. Because of that, when I recovered, I decided not to do any more rallies on the bike and switched to an SSV at the end of 2019. After completing a number of small rallies, I did the Dakar for the first time in 2022, finished and that gave me the hunger for more!
“It’s a big challenge to put everything together with your own team, but the preparations have gone well and we can’t wait to start this beautiful event. Marco has been a friend of mine for over 20 years. He’s followed all my past adventures and wants to be part of it.
“Our rally will be a success if we can finish without any major problems. It would also be great if we can be inside the top 20.”
