Orlando Terranova: My eyes had to adjust to the speed and terrain


In Dakar 2021 prologue the fastest X-raid crew was Orlando Terranova and Ronnie Graue, who finished sixth in their MINI JCW Rally.

Orlando Terranova: “It was not so easy to get the right feeling – after all, it is about a year since I last competed in a rally. Futhermore, my eyes had to adjust to the speed and terrain.

Despite this, it was a good start for us. The MINI is running very well, I just need to adjust my seat position a little. I think we are in a good starting position for tomorrow.”
