My Bank Account

Here is a quick look at my Bank account…. only € 84.81 left!!! I still have no idea how i will manage to raise the remaining € 5,700 to pay the last qoute of the Dakar entry fee due in November. Also i still have to figure out how to pay for all the other expenses (Flight, food, fuel, tyres, etc).

Why do i have only € 84 in my bank account?

The 16th of May, the first day that the Dakar entries opened i took the crazy decision to send my entry, with no sponsors i got all my earnings of the past 6 years and paid € 9,700 out of € 14,400 of the entry fee. I had no idea on how i would cover the rest and all the other expenses but i decided to take a chance and risk everything to chase my dream!!! From May i managed to reduce a great amount of costs thanks to people and companies that are believing in my project, infact i got support from Husaberg Austria, Team Husaberg Rallye Racing Australia (Thanks to them i will participate to the Australasian Safari next week), Safari Tanks, Onboard Graphics which are supporting me technically. Its still a long way to go but in some way i will make it!!
