Mitsubishi Spain will enter the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross T1 Prototype into the 2019 Dakar Rally which takes place from 6th to 17th January. Spaniard Christina Gutierrez will drive the car alongside her co-driver Pablo Huete.
Speaking about the news, Gutierrez said:
“As always when you face a Dakar, you do it with great expectation but also a lot of respect for the test. “The first objective, of course, is to finish what is the toughest rally in the world, for the third time in a row.”
Speaking about the Eclipse Cross T1 Prototype Gutierrez commented by saying:
For me, it is a big step ahead compared to the previous years. You can go very fast with it, while it is easier to drive and has greater off road capabilities. It’s the most spectacular car I’ve ever driven and attracts a lot of attention
