Wow! What a journey its been so far. After selling my home and training for 3 years to get to the Dakar Rally in 2015, I crashed out in the dunes of the Atacama Desert. In 2016 I returned, but luck would elude me again with another DNF - this time from a mechanical problem and fatigue. 2018 saw me in Africa, but again mechanical issues thwarted my attempt. Its going to take a little financial help to see me go once again in 2019. I hope to raise the money needed by continuing with our guided trail rides in the South West, auctioning off items, and finding more sponsors. Thank you for everyones support so far. Corky

Me and the chain roller that inflicted the initial damage that eventually ended my Africa Race in just 2 days. Not what I had planned but as everyone keeps telling me - that' racing.

Good news is that I now have the backing of a top rally parts manufacturer whom have been following me from the start, and have total confidence in my abilities to get the LC8 to the finish line. They will be kindly rebuilding and improving the LC8 rally build with a new custom built rear end, oil tank, and the next version of their nav tower. 

I've has some great words of encouragement and support from others people in the industry, followers, friends, fellow riders, and the media so it's straight back into the training and lets hope some sponsorship comes my way and I can fulfil the dream of reaching Dakar on a twin cylinder.
