We respond willingly to the mail of our friends who ask us for info or photos of drivers who have left traces in the desert and in the history of this competition.
In this case we respond to our friend Katie Darnell asking if we had material on his friend Gian Paolo Qadri in any edition of the Dakar.
Looking for among our archives we found some pictures of Dakae 1998, his fifth participation by Gian Paolo where he finished in 29th place most honourable, (on 55 bike to the finish) astride a small Honda XR400, not exactly a bison from 100 HP!!!
Our congratulations to Gian Paolo, private indomitable!
