Tim & Tom Coronel

Dakar Rally

The routiniers

With joint efforts and after a year of preparation, 46-year-old twin brothers Tim and Tom Coronel will be participating in the 2019 Dakar Rally from 6 January, again with their cherished buggy they refer to as ‘The Beast’ because of its agressive looks. For part 2 of the multi-year project with the US-built Jefferies Buggy, powered by a 6.2 liter Chevrolet engine, the Baja-style desert vehicle underwent so many updates that the two are hoping that ‘The Beast’ will still be looking like a ‘Beauty’ at the finish in Lima, the capital of Peru, on 17 January.
