Who is Angelo Pedemonte

An entrepreneur but always passionate about motorsport, especially long raids in unknown territories, those that involve driving not only from a physical point of view, but above all in navigation and in the choice of routes. The sense of orientation must necessarily be part of the wealth of experience and Pedemonte says he found his gym in Morocco and in the numerous International Rally in which he raced, gaining considerable experience in the use of the Ertf and Iritrack navigation systems. For several consecutive years I raced on the famous dunes of the Merzouga Rally, always finishing the race, apart from a retirement due to injury. Now it is for the race of the races, for the Dakar that everyone fears but everyone aspires to.

The history of the Dakar

The legendary Paris-Dakar, since the second half of the seventies, represents the goal and dream of all drivers (cars, motorcycles and trucks) passionate about rallying in the desert. The historical route included the departure from Paris and the arrival in Dakar, Senegal. The competition, during which epic and even tragic pages of motor sports were written, was finally canceled in 2008 when the deterioration of the political situation in the Western Sahara area no longer guaranteed safety for the drivers. The competition (which kept the name of Dakar) was moved to South America for a few editions and then arrived, in 2020, in Saudi Arabia.
