2014 Dakar Rally. Queen of Desert, Laia Sanz (Spain, 1985) is tough and sweet at the same time. She was the best woman in Dakar Rally during the last three editions, with the number 39 (in 2010 and 2011) as the best balance. Yesterday, she began her fourth edition with a Honda.
She is very respected by sportsmen. “Men treat me like any other driver. The rally is hard for them and for us.” “I have a good feeling with men.”
This year and for the first time, she will cross the Bolivian Salar, another test of survival. The Dakar Rally always hides several traps. Also, in the new tour of Bolivia. After the Bolivian Salar comes the Atacama Desert, very difficult place too.
Yareah wishes the best to Laia Sanz, a great person and fantastic sportswoman.
** The Dakar Rally (formerly known as “Paris to Dakar Rally”) is an annual off-road race. Most races since the inauguration in 1978 were from Paris to Dakar in Senegal, but due to security problems in Mauritania the 2009 Dakar Rally was run in Argentina and Chile and since then, it has been held in South America. The race is open to amateur and professional participants.
Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
Happy New Year 2014.
