What is it?
The Century Racing team will dish the inside scoop on its Dakar Rally 2016 experience in South America. The talk – presented by Mark Corbett – will also focus on the team’s entreprenuerail spirit in designing and manufacturing cars locally as well as exporting cars. This past January 2016, two Century Racing teams tackled the 38th Dakar Rally with local custom-built rally vehicles.
Entrepreneurial spirit, years of research and development and lots of guts saw the teams scoop first and third place finishes in the petrol two-wheel drive category. The high-tech, custom-built rally cars stood the test against factory teams which are known for their impressive support infrastructure. Corbett, with navigator Juan Mohr finished in 17th position overall. The second team, with driver Colin Matthews and navigator Rodney Burke finished a creditable 37th.
