Bookmakers estimated the chances of Andre Villas-Boas in rally-RAID “Dakar-2018”
“I have long dreamed of performing on “Dakar” and eventually realized that you need to try now while I’m young and strong enough physically and psychologically. What I decided to debut in 40 years, as my uncle Pedro (who participated in the race in 1982) – pure coincidence – said Vilash-Boas, in an interview with Marca. – To switch from football to racing was not so difficult because I love cars and Motorsport. I like to drive, live the life of a racer, to participate in briefings with the leadership team, the navigators.
This week I first drove on the dunes, and I really liked it, although many difficulties have arisen. I talked a lot with Ruben Faria on this topic. I like a man with no experience of playing in the sand, are very hard, when you reach the top of the dunes. You don’t know what lies beyond it and is forced to take our foot off the gas pedal”.
