After long preparations, many hours of work, test drives and painful farewells to family, friends and colleagues, Team Scorpions (Schorpioenen) started their Old Banger Challenge on Saturday 7th November at 11.00 a.m.. As is traditional with the Amsterdam-Dakar race, the 32 teams left Amsterdam in convoy to drive to the Dutch border. From Belgium they were free to make their own way to Dakar, with the South of Spain as their next stop. They arrived on Monday and continued their journey the next day on the ferry to the African continent.
