    The brothers Tito and Silvio Totani reached 60th place in the general classification, first among the Italian crews and first among the rigid bridge cars in the Dakar 2022 which, after about 8 thousand kilometers and 12 stages, ended in Jeddah, where it had started on January 1st. For the two L’Aquila, whose enterprise was supported by the Department of Sport of the Abruzzo Region, a return in grand style to the famous car race ten years after the last time. The Dakar is one of the most famous motor racing and motorcycling rallies in the world, which included the final stage until 2007 in the capital of Senegal, in West Africa. The race is attended by cars, motorcycles, trucks, quads and Side by Side. Experience and skill made the difference and allowed the Squid to overcome all the difficulties encountered in these 14 days in which they crossed the desert of the Arabian Peninsula. Mud, dunes destroyed by the passage of trucks, fords and bogged-downs characterized the various stages, in which the two had to juggle taking advantage of the limited possibilities offered by the regulation. Great satisfactions came from the car, the Nissan Patrol, which despite some unforeseen events – such as the brake servo that at one point gave trouble, or the set-up that the team mechanics had to fix between one stage and the next, overnight. because it had suffered from the course – it has shown full reliability to the point of allowing, in fact, the crossing of the finish line. The work of the technical staff has been incessant: from the initial adjustments requested by the FIA ​​inspectors before the start, to an adjustment in the use of tires with softer compounds that allowed a great comeback for the Abruzzese crew on the dunes of the Riyadh region, the mechanics have never relaxed the tension. With 10 stages completed out of 12, the Nissan Patrol performed very well and the two bypassed stages demonstrated an enormous strategic maturity on the part of Silvio and Tito in always having the goal of crossing the finish line on the last day in Jeddah.
