Paralympic, a Dakar without barriers

Gianluca, born in 1961, wants to be the first paraplegic driver to finish the grueling rally that starts tomorrow in South America. “The strategy – says the staff of Tassi – will be constancy without wanting to overdo it: concentration and constant rhythms to reach the finish line”

The first one is never forgotten. So his message acquires even more force: “My wants to be a challenge to demonstrate to all the people in my condition that you can pursue your passions and also face extreme adventures like the Dakar.” Unequivocal: signed Gianluca Tassi. It will be the first Italian driver with disabilities to participate in the maximum international off-road competition, the most extreme tout terrain competition in the world. Another paraplegic driver, Isidre Esteve, the Spaniard who has already taken part in the 2009 Dakar, has also started, but he could not finish it because of the wounds.
