|Africa Eco Race: Senegalese mixed team "Feel Good" is playing at home|
Two race cars, a motorcycle and a service truck: The Team "Feel Good Senegal" gets ready for its first participation in the Africa Eco Race. A 100% Senegalese team, real Africa lovers who all live in Dakar. Yves Marie Dulioust and Thierry Maury, at the origin of this project will compose the first crew on a Nissan Patrol. With two Senegal Prototype category champion titles in 2008 and 2009 and two wins in the Tour of Senegal, the duo has a strong experience.
For Yves Marie Dulioust the Africa Eco Race was a crush: "After three years as team manager (management of 3 prototypes), it was time to try something else. After a concluding test during the Tour of Senegal in 2010, the decision was made for the African great adventure. Our team exists for a long time and in tribute to its founder, we wished to keep the name alive" he told.
"From the first edition of Africa Race, I had a crush for this event. The philosophy of this race reminds me the first editions of the "Dakar" with a nice atmosphere and strong human values. It is exactly our philosophy: An adventure with friends on a long race. Our objective: everybody has to be at home on the 9th of January."
Serge Floris and Pierrick Legendre will be on the second Nissan Patrol while Sheikh Yves Jacquemain, a young biker from Dakar, will be on its Sherco. "A big party is planned on the last bivouac in Senegal with all those who supported us in this project. Our wish - not disappointing them" Dulioust added.
