Cyril Despres

“We are happy with a MINI John Cooper Works Buggy and a set-up we
did yesterday – we can make so many kilometres in contrast like we
have finished in Morocco, though here in a silt and dunes of Peru it is
opposite and we have to set a automobile adult unequivocally well. We have great
group spirit, so when we saw Stéphane stranded in a dunes we felt that I
contingency assistance him and so we did.”

 

Stéphane Peterhansel

“I got stranded and was in a unequivocally bad place. We are happy though
since Cyril stopped for us and pulled us clear. We mislaid a lot of
time but, we think, but a assistance of Cyril it would have been a lot worse.”
