Dakar Rally Day 6: SS5: Comfort Is a Drug

“Longest racing stage so far, which I feel played to both our strengths. The tougher and longer the race, the better! It was a big dune day too, again [it had] very busy navigation with a whole lot of off piste rocky and sandy stuff. Our morning started off perfectly, until we went a few meters too far right down the wrong ridge, having to turn around in a dead end. From there on, we put our heads down and killed it. I’m feeling great. Everyday we’re adapting and gaining experience. Looks like it was a South African car P1 and P2 today! Giniel de Villiers and then us, Brian Baragwanath and I, with Century Racing. Can’t believe five stages are done. And another two hours of Liaison to do now, and then we climb into prepping the car for Stage 6. Huge thanks to the team and Century racing, because this is definitely a team effort every single day… Tons of work. No time to rest!” Taye Perry #339, CENTURY RACING
