Sporting Achievements:
3-times Rallye Co-Driver; Winner of Tuareg Rallye 2018

Alex thinks the Tuareg Rallye is a perfect event for amateurs as well as a great navigational test and training ground for those who ultimately want to continue to compete in Africa Eco or the Dakar. It's a great introduction to driving the dunes (in fact, the Kings Stage is as tough as a day on the original Dakar route!). The scenery is stunning and it's a very well-organised event with an emphasis on safety and good-spirited competition. We would like to come back to compete in the Tuareg again, we have been interested in driving in Algeria for some time.

Sporting Achievements:
Winner Tuareg Rallye 2007/2009/2017/2018 

Since 1998/99 I have always been a mechanic on the Dakar and other rallies and wanted to drive myself at some point... 2002 was the year of the Tuareg Rally in Morocco. Until then I had only ridden motocross and enduro. Then for the first time desert, rally, roadbook, navigation (at that time still with compass, without GPS)
From the first rally on, I only drive rallies where I / we also offer service at the same time. Until about 2012 I still screwed the whole nights myself. Since about 3 years I also go to bed around midnight and leave at least a part of the work to my / our mechanics.

For me, the Tuareg Rally is like a big family in which you can simply feel comfortable thanks to the nice people in the Orga. You look forward to this event all year round.

Occupation: COO of a car company
Sporting Achievements:

15 years of rally experience
(inkl. Dakar, Atlas, Sertoes, Tunisia, Trans-Oriental, Orient)

I've been competing in the Tuareg Rally since 2016. It is a very well organised rally and for me the best compromise between quality, safety, sport, fun and price.

My goal is still to win the Tuareg Rally and I will try again next year.

But actually the fun with my friends from Team Owaka and the time with my brother and son is in the foreground for me. Of course, neither does anyone get hurt.

See you next year in Algeria 2019!

We had a lot of fun, learned a lot this year and will be even better prepared for next year's competition. We plan to further improve our Toyota "The beast" Landcruiser and plans for a VW oriented dune buggy are taking shape.
A year to the next Tuareg Rally seems long, but we think we can use every day!
