Last week the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge was held in de deserts of the United Arab Emirates. The GoKOBra team with pilots Jurgen van den Goorbergh and Kees Koolen used this rally to test the Super B supported buggy's.
Unfortunately the FIA didn't approve the buggy's for the rally, due to the fact that the regulation for the Dakarrally is slightly different. A pitty, because Jurgen was riding times fast enough to be in the top five.
But he was still pleased with the rally:''What a rally! If you want to learn to ride the sanddunes this is the place to be. Some dunestages were more difficult and tougher than in the Dakar. In the dunes we could compete wth the fastest cars, on the tracks we were loosing terrain on topspeed. We have tried different tyres with different sizes, to get more groundclearance. It was a good week for us.''
