Interview

“The whole family is passionate and Dakar is special”

After his brother Pietro Cinotto raced Dakar 2022 with their father Michele, it was only natural for Carlo to also make his return on the most challenging rally-raid in the world. It’s not the first time there will be three vehicles driven by a Cinotto in the Dakar. It first happened in 2013, following a first reunion in the 2012 Rallye des Pharaons. Since then, Michele has been a regular of the Dakar, Pietro completed the event last year, but Carlo is yet to become a finisher. With the passion and the competitive spirit in the family, there is no doubt he will be willing to make it to the end but also to drive as fast as possible to win the Cinotto challenge. To make it a successful bet, Carlo comes with Marco Arnoletti, who has a solid experience of racing, especially the Dakar (5 participations, including the 2020 edition alongside Michele Cinotto) and a great understanding of mechanics as a powertrain chief engineer for Bugatti.


P.C.: “I did the Dakar in 2013. We had three cars with my father and my brother. It was in South America and it was very hard. I had to withdraw with a broken motor. So I’m back to try again a few years later. We always have big ambitions but we also have to be realist. I’m here to take on the challenge, enjoy myself and make it to the end.
The whole family is passionate for motorsport and Dakar is something special. Obviously, it’s important for us to be together. In a way, we can help each other but also challenge each other. It will be fun at the bivouac!”
