Interview

“I said, wow, that's what I was waiting for!”

Husband and wife duo Marco Ernesto Leva and Alexia Giugni take on the Dakar in a 1987 Fiat. The adventure was Giugni’s idea, enthusiastically welcomed by Leva, who has dreamed of doing the event since he was a kid in the 1980s. The pair soon set to work upgrading the Panda for an event former enduro rider Leva knows will be gruelling both mechanically and physically.


M.E.L.: “I've been dreaming about the Dakar since I was a kid in the 1980s. We were speaking with friends and my wife said to me, ‘why don't we take part in the Dakar classic?’ I said, ‘Wow, that's what I was waiting for!’ And so here we are in this adventure together. My wife is also a driver in regularity rallies but this time, I will be at the wheel and she will be at the notes.
“Mentally I've been in a panic for the past month! But I’ve tried to do some preparation from a physical point of view because I know the 15 days will be very tough. I think we are prepared enough to enjoy this experience. Let's put it that way. We don't have any other expectations. The target is to finish.”
