Leave a reply

Following their successes in recent years which culminated in a 2nd place for Giniel de Villiers (who himself won the Dakar rally in 2009 in a Volkswagen Toureg), Toyota have entered the 2014 Dakar rally with 2 South African drivers: de Villiers and newcomer Leeroy Poulter.
Having competed previously with Giniel de Villiers and ABSA off-road competitor Duncan Vos, Toyota have seen successful competition in earlier Dakar rallies but have yet to win a Dakar rally.
Following a 2nd place for de Villiers and Vos retiring on just day 3 of the rally, Toyota have returned to the drawing board and rebuilt their Hilux to tackle Dakar 2013.
Members of the original team have been retained, including de Villiers, co-driver Dirk von Zitzewitz and team boss Glynn Hall will return in 2014 with first-time Dakar driver Leeroy Poulter. Poulter will be have Duncan Vos’ 2013 co-driver Rob Howie sitting beside him.
This years route will from Rosario, Argentina to Salta for a rest day and finish in Valparaíso, from 5 to 18 January 2014.
