2024 Dakar Rally Rookie Sara Price is on a Hot Streak - Sitting in 2nd Place in SSV Classification
Price and navigator Gray enter the final 2024 Dakar Rally stages with an edge – remaining consistent and impressive for first Dakar participation.
Americans Sara Price and navigator Jeremy Gray have been highly competitive from the very beginning of the 2024 Dakar Rally in Saudi Arabia. Price has consistently placed among the top 10 finishers, including a podium in the opening stage, with smartly driven races during the first 9 stages of the 12-stage 2024 Dakar Rally.
Sara’s game plan from the start was, “to be consistent and try not to make too many mistakes with the car. Winning your class the first time you run Dakar is rare, so my strategy had been all about getting to the halfway point. We did that and it made a big difference in our morale and our point of view.”
Price’s consistently high finishes have continued to put the team in a great place leading into the final leg of the 2024 Dakar Rally. As of the 9th stage, this privateer team has placed their “arrive-and-drive” South Racing Can-Am Maverick X3 in 2nd-in-class (SSV, formerly T4) position in their first Dakar Rally, as well as 1st-in-class for the World Rally-Raid Championship (W2RC).
Price said, “For the final leg of the 2024 Dakar Rally we’re going to stay with the overall plan and keep up as fast a pace as we can manage while protecting the car.” Keep up with the final stages as Price pushes to the finish.
