Sara Price, an American off-road star, officially entered the world’s motorsports history books yesterday, with a ride from Agadir to Merzouga, in preparation for the Dakar Rally.
Price finished second in the extremely difficult T4 class to cap off her World Rally-Raid Championship debut.
After Wednesday’s fifth and final day, with all 1400 competition kilometers completed, she stepped out of her Can-Am Maverick X3 and turned to take a close look at the vehicle’s left rear wheel, said Dirtfish media, recalling the driver’s experience in the Morocco-based competition “Rallye Du Maroc”.
Price is now the first American female to win a rally raid (W2RC) stage, which she considers to be “a real thrill and an absolute honor.”
She told the same media that she and co-driver Jeremy Gray “showed our speed and our ability to bring the car through some unbelievable conditions. I wasn’t sure what to expect this week, and fighting for the win is a huge result for me.
Besides competing professionally, Price is a SAGAFTRA stunt woman.
