Interview

“Two punctures can ruin the day and the result”

Pascal de Baar is a legend in the Dakar. He started his career on a bike back in 2005 and changed to the trucks in 2009. As a fast assistance truck he was in the back of the field all the time, spending nights in the desert. If there is anyone with stories of great adventures, it is De Baar. Not only from the Dakar, also from his business, trading used trucks all over the world. In 2016 the Dutchman had the chance to go for his own success and his years in the back of the field helped him win the SuperSpecial, beating all the top trucks, and finish the Dakar in an excellent sixth, to anyone’s surprise -also his own. This year De Baar, who likes experimenting, is back in the game as the second truck of Riwald Dakar, accompanied by the experienced Jan van der Vaet and personal friend Stefan Slootjes.

Pascal de Baar: “We trained quite a bit this year, despite the circumstances. My truck has remained almost the same, we only strengthened the rear axle. The battle at the front is so competitive that if you puncture twice you have a chance that you will fall out of the top immediately. Let alone if you get something like a broken rear axle. That is really disastrous. You have to build a very solid truck but also drive very solidly and keep the car intact. I expect a heavier Dakar with shorter straights. But the rally will also develop further in Saudi Arabia. Several motorsport federations have helped to set routes, I am excited and curious what it will bring us.”
