Yaaaay Grabbo!

That's great news SafariBerg!

Now here's a strong candidate for "rookie of the year" award at Dakar 2013...

He's done/won everything there is in rallies, enduro, dirttrack and desert racing down under... and humbled some pretty big national and international names in the process... ISDE gold's and class wins.

He has never really been one to let the nerves/hype of a "big race" ever ruffle him much either... Ben gives me the impression, that with his demeanor and the results/experience/team behind him, that he won't let his debut appearance in the big show at Dakar phase him that much?

Aside from the injury he had back in April (the one possible chink in the preparation armour), I wouldn't be surprised to see Grabbo do some good things on the daily result sheets. Will be real interesting to see how he goes at the Merzouga rally in Marocco later this year... that will be his first real baptism of fire with the off piste/sand dune style GPS navigation.
