Claudio Bellina uses to say, joking, that these two weeks spent competing on the Dakar are his holidays. In reality the rally is more than that. Third classified in 2005 as the navigator of Giacomo Vismara, Claudio can boast more than 10 Dakar participations and his Ginaf is very well recognized in the bivouac. Together with his co-driver Giulio Minelli (who has almost 25 Dakar under his belly), they form an experienced duo. With them also Bruno Gotti, a passionate about off road and desert, at his debut on the Dakar. Owner of Italtrans, leader company in logistics and transport, and of a successful Moto2 team, competing in the FIM Road Racing Championship, Claudio Bellina is a true passionate about Africa, the desert and the rally competition and he tries to combine at the best his work and his passion.
“I really look forward to discover Peru. To tackle a route that will feature a lot of sand, we have prepared well the truck. It is lighter and more powerful. On my side as co-driver Giulio Minelli, an experienced navigator and a friend. With us also Bruno Gotti and his first participation. Since the Dakar moved from Africa to South America the competition level has grown a lot year after year. Our target is to enjoy the rally and cross the finish line in Lima on January 17th.”
