It’s quite an extraordinary buggy Michiel Becx and Edwin Kuijpers bring to the start of the Morocco Desert Challenge, without a doubt. Not just because it is bright neon yellow. The Mitjet is designed as a buggy for baja racing, which means it is fast – and it does look fast - , but not necessarily easy to drive. “It is not built for rally raids like this”, copilot Kuijpers admits. “Therefore we ourselves may be a bit more modest concerning the expectations.”
The Dutch duo went for a test in the Merzouga dunes the past few days ahead of the start of the Morocco Desert Challenge, where they found quite a few points to improve. “We’ll have to wait and see how good this car is”, Kuijpers says. “We aim for a top 10 position, which should be possible when nothing crazy occurs, and we’ll see what happens from then on.”
