Interview

“I always wanted to drive in the Dakar”

After some hobby-moderate experience driving in the Enduro, Jeffrey Otten switched to rally driving in the Peugeot 206 rally cup in 2019. Unfortunately, due to all the Covid-19 measures, they had so less possibilities to drive. And then Jeffrey saw a SSV for sale…

J.O.: “In 2020 I saw an SSV on the internet, a SSV that drove the Dakar rally. I’ve always wanted to drive Dakar and researched what is involved to eventually be able to participate at the Dakar. In the end I had an SSV built to be able to drive the rallies. We started training through various Cross-Country rallies in preparation for Dakar, the toughest rally in the world.”

N.Z.: This will be our first Dakar, we competed twice in the Breslau rally, won the night-special in 2020, and drove in Tunisia. At the age of 16 I started in the motorsport by racing on a moped in the Supermoto-class. In January 2022 my job will be to navigate and because I’m technical, I will be the one to solve any technical problems. Our goal is to finish this Dakar rally the best we can do, for ourselves, families and of course for our sponsors and partners.”
