Dakar 2021: Quarantine, Test and Prep

Tim and Tom – and the rest of the Coronel Dakar Team – have been in Saudi Arabia for almost a week. After arrival they had to be quarantined for two days before undergoing another covid test. Only with a negative result, they were allowed to pick up the car at the port.

“It all took a bit longer than we had expected,” says Tim. “And because of that, we were only able to do the last things on the car later than we had planned. Fortunately, the car doesn’t have to go in a parc fermé this time, so we can continue working until the start of the prologue. The boys had been working so hard already in the past months! But we can be happy that the Dakar can take place at all, so we are not complaining.”
