Podium ceremony #Dakar2015

Posted on Updated on

Jan 4. Buenos Aires

This afternoon it was the official podium ceremony. Thousands and thousands of spectators waving and celebrating the start of the Dakar 2015 in Buenos Aires.
Already me and Paul had to help a fellow competitor, from the parc fermé.
The car starting behind us, no 395, had forgot their key and were risking to miss their start time, so we towed him to the starting gates. Luckily the key was found, and they could take the start. But this is how it should be in Dakar, helping each other – that’s Dakar spirit!

Below our cool car Desert warrior 394, and me and friends. And photos of the ceremony. Video link on bottom.
