Excite Rally Raid has an exciting plan for a three year journey to ultimately compete at the famous Dakar Rally.

The team runs a British built Desert Warrior 3 designed to take on all that off-road and Baja racing can throw at it.

“It will be a tough route to follow but we have come a long way in a short space of time and we have a crew and backroom team talented and determined enough to cope with it.”
– Team Principal – John Hardy.

“We are very much looking forward to broadening our competitive experiences, and looking to build on recent successes. We are on a journey that promises so much over the next few years. And we are so grateful for all those supporting us in our endeavours”
Commercial Manager – Dean Faulkner
