Wow! What a journey its been so far. After selling my home and training for 3 years to get to the Dakar Rally in 2015, I crashed out in the dunes of the Atacama Desert. In 2016 I returned, but luck would elude me again with another DNF - this time from a mechanical problem and fatigue. 2018 saw me in Africa, but again mechanical issues thwarted my attempt. Its going to take a little financial help to see me go once again in 2019. I hope to raise the money needed by continuing with our guided trail rides in the South West, auctioning off items, and finding more sponsors. Thank you for everyones support so far. Corky

Sponsorship

The Africa Eco Race is quickly becoming the rally that racers want to be in. People are proclaiming it 'The Real Dakar'. No 450cc limits, no daily 500k tarmac liasions, just 500 to 700 km's of pure desert racing every day for 14 days. The race follows the classic Dakar route through Morocco, Mauritania, and Senegal, and has daily reports on Eurosport where all the UK riders are reported on. There is also behind the scenes footage from the track and bivouac aired from the official website. As the yearly registrations increase, so does the interest from the media. The bike/rider will be reported on in the UK motorcycle press and local papers.
